Nestled under the base of the former Gulf & Western Building which was the home of Paramount Pictures at the corner of Manhattan’s Columbus Circle, it featured mostly high profile films and Academy Award nominated features. The Paramount Theatre was opened on June 24, 1970 with “Catch 22”. It was taken over by Loew’s in 1981.
Before it closed in 1994, it screened the film “Forrest Gump” and stayed there for months.
The building above was sold to real estate mogul Donald Trump who converted it to a hotel and tower today. The theater was the first to go — it was completely removed and is now an underground parking garage in the basement of the hotel. Today, there’s no sign that the theater ever existed.
