The Paramount Theater was opened by the Wilbey-Kincey chain in 1935. The theater had two balconies and was in an Art Deco style. Later operated by Key Theatres, then by Martin Theatres, who closed it in fall of 1970.
The building was owned by the City of High Point. A bond was passed to restore the theatre to live theatre use. About this time, Southern Furniture, who basically occupied the majority of the surrounding block, wanted the theatre property. They wanted it so bad that they promised to build a theatre inside the new exposition building, that was state of art, thereby saving the City of High Point considerable money. The Paramount Theatre was demolished.
