The Paramount Theatre dates back to at least 1930 when a Barton theater organ was installed. During the 1940’s, it is listed as being operated by Paramount Pictures Inc. through their subsidiary M.A. Lightman.

The Paramount Theatre is still listed in the 1955 Film Daily Yearbook with 1,530 seats.

“Fast and Loose”, the movie advertised on the marquee in the exterior shot, came out in 1930.

Here’s an article on the Trenton Theatre, which doesn’t seem to have a listing at Cinema Treasures: boxoffice

Miss Toes has found something very interesting. The Trenton/Warner needs more research.

I just submitted an advertisement I scanned from the “Lynchburg News” that shows what I remember of the Paramount, that it was only showing X-rated movies by the 1970s. I remember my father telling me he remembered 6 theaters being downtown when he was growing up. The Paramount and Boonsboro must have been owned by the same institution or individual because the ads are together in one block.
