Architects: George W. Leslie Rapp
Previous Names: Portland Publix Theatre, Paramount Theatre
Originally opened by West Coast Theatres Inc. & Publix-Loew as the Portland Publix Theatre in 1928, the 3,400-seat, Italian Rococo Revival style theatre was designed by the Chicago-based architectural firm of Rapp & Rapp and Portland based architects DeYoung & Roald as associate architects/supervisors. Interior decorations were by Armstrong & Powers.
Renamed the Paramount Theatre not long after it opened, the theatre has retained its 60-foot sign with glows with over 6,000 lightbulbs.
The theatre is now the home of the Oregon Symphony and was renamed the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall in 1984. It remains a stunning testament to the work of Rapp & Rapp, renovated to the plans of ELS Architects.
