The Paramount Theatre opened in 1930. It is still listed as operating in the 1950 edition of Film Daily Yearbook.

Any further information would be appreciated.

This website has a photo of a Wurlitzer that was installed in the Paramount in 1927.

I wonder how accurate the information is on that website concerning the Wurlitzer organ. The theater organ list that I normally use shows a Wurlitzer Opus 2128 being installed in the Paramount Theater in Fort Wayne on August 26, 1930.

I remember going to this Pizza and Pipes once when I was really little. I loved it, but it burned down only a few months after I went there.

My great-grandfather, Paul F. Nachtigall, was the sculptor who created and carved the molds for the bas-releif plasterwork inside the Emboyd (Embassy Theatre) and the Paramount in Fort Wayne. I have an article about him that mentions that the Fort Wayne News Sentinel published a special section about the Paramount when it opened on October 3, 1930. If they have an archive, you may be able to find additional information about the Paramount there.
