Originally opened in 1912 as the Greenwood Theater, the theater originally presented live acts as well as movies. On July 20, 1930 the theater was renamed the Paramount Theater when it was taken over by Paramount Pictures Inc. and operated via their subsidiary E.V. Richards. It reopened with Lon Chaney in “The Unholy Three”. It remained in operation until being destroyed by a fire in the 1970’s.
