Built in 1915 as the Majestic Theatre, this classic vaudeville house has continued showing everything from travelling stage shows to classic films.

It was renamed Paramount Theatre in 1930. A new marquee was added in around 2000.

What a spectacular-looking theatre, both inside and out. Love the marquee on the outside front, too.

More random pictures of the Paramount taken in the last 4 years. Some house shots, stage shots and booth related photos.

I just sent the Paramount Theatre an email in regards to returning the vertical marquee to its exterior facade.

And I just realized this theatre was a John Eberson! Is it considered an atmospheric?

No, it is not an atmospheric. More classical in nature. Yeah, we’d love to have the vertical PARAMOUNT sign back. The theater will be 100 in 2015 and another face lift is hopefully in the works.

JohnS: 100 in 2015! A nice birthday present would be a vertical sign!
