News About This Theater
- Mar 2, 2010 — Happy 45th, "The Sound Of Music"
Saenger Amusements opened its Paramount Theatre on Capitol Street in downtown Jackson on February 11, 1938. It was in elegant Streamline Moderne style. The facade featured a large vertical sign against a gleaming white concrete wall. The lettering, in stylized Moderne style, were illuminated with neon. The rather plain triangular marquee was also illuminated by neon. Seating was provided for 1,091 in the orchestra, 288 in the Loge and 289 in the balcony.
The Paramount Theatre closed in the late-1970’s, and was demolished afterward.
