Opened as the Liberty Theatre in 1918, this small, yet elegant building was clad in white terra cotta, and ornamented with swags and fluted pilasters. It was designed by architect C. Howard Crane, with Stanley & Scheibel as associate architects.
It became known as the Paramount Theatre in the late-1920’s and its mezzanine was given an Art Deco makeover in the 1930’s.
Closed by the early-1970’s, the marquee has since been removed, leaving only a metal framework. An ill fated renovation was attempted in the early-1980’s but abandoned due to cost constraints.
The interior plasterwork was particularly beautiful. The building contains two empty storefronts which have been gutted although the lobby and auditorium were more or less intact. It was demolished in March 2013.
