This theatre was built in 1932 and it’s motto was “the city theatre in the country'. For the small and remote mining township of Queenstown, Tasmania, the 1,150 seat picture theatre designed for the talkies was quite something. For many years the Paragon Theatre (and its arch-rival the Capitol Theatre) were the main contact for this extremely isolated community with the outside world.

It closed in 1983, it was briefly used as an indoor cricket centre. It was renovated and reopened as a 60 seat luxury cinema in 2009.
