Park Theatre operator Gordon Aamoth, making his first visit to Hollywood, was photographed with actor Fernando Lamas on the set of the movie “Sangaree.” The photo was published in Boxoffice Magazine, March 14, 1953. The caption had the most recent mention of the Park I’ve been able to find.

Gordon Aamoth owned the Park, Roxy, and Towne theaters in Fargo in association with his brothers, H.C. and Francis Aamoth. The latter two opened the Roxy in 1932. The Towne, formerly the State, was operated by the Aamoths from 1951 until 1962.

The Park Theatre was on the “Theaters Planned” list in the January 16, 1939, issue of The Film Daily:

“Fargo— Park, 300 seats, 504 Front St.; Builder: H. C. Aamoth; Architect: Joe Rosette; Operator: Gordon Aamoth.”
I can’t find anything about Joe Rosette on the Internet. Rosette is a real surname, or I’d be inclined to think the magazine had made a mistake.

The Park Theatre operated at least into the late-1950’s.
