Marion Bodwell opened the Paramount Theatre in 1934 in a building in downtown Wyoming that dated to 1881 and had previously housed a bank, a grocery store and a cigar factory. Bodwell added a wonderful Art Deco-style marquee spelling out the theater’s name in elegant, neon-lit lettering, as well as an outdoor ticket booth. The theater sat around 280 and would continue to be a popular feature of Wyoming’s downtown for decades.
The Paramount Theatre closed in 1969, several years after Marion Bodwell handed over the operation of the theatre to his son Tom. Though the family briefly reopened the Paramount Theatre on a limited basis in 1987, it closed once more not long after.
In the late-1990’s, the Paramount Theatre was sold to Barry Sprout and reopened, but closed once more in 2000. This beauty unfortunately remains closed today, and is up for sale.
