The Temple Theater was opened in 1914. It was remodelled in 1929 to the plans of architect Thomas Lamb and was reopened on December 5, 1929 as the Paramount Theater. There is little information about this theater. It was torn down in 1967 along with its neighbor, the RKO Keith’s Theater, but may have ceased operation a year earlier. Like the Keith’s, the Paramount Theater remained a first-run house until it closed.
Built before the Loew’s State Theater, the Paramount Theater started as a vaudeville theater. Thomas Lamb also designed the Loew’s State Theatre, RKO Keith’s Theatre and the Strand Theatre in Syracuse, but the Paramount Theater was not as large as those three. The Paramount Theater may also have been substantially modernized when it become the first Syracuse theater converted to CinemaScope in late-1953.
