Saenger Amusements opened its Paramount Theatre on Capitol Street in downtown Jackson in 1938, 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.
The Paramount Theatre closed in the late-1970’s, and was demolished afterward.
