Paramount Theatre

The Paramount Theatre in the North View section of Clarksburg was one of several small town West Virginia movie houses using that name during the silent era. It is not known if any of them were affiliated with Paramount Pictures or not.

The address given for the Clarksburg Paramount in a 1921 city directory was 614 Hammil [sic] Avenue, but that number no longer exists, nor are there any numbers that small on Hamill Avenue today. The most likely candidate to have been the Paramount Theatre is a single-story brick building with an arched front on the north side of Hamill Avenue in the 1900 block, but it isn’t certain that this was the theatre. The house was not listed in the Film Daily Yearbooks for 1926, so it had probably closed by then.
