The Paris Theatre opened up on what was then Tangerine Avenue. It was a small one-screen affair that probably closed during the middle of the century. The site is currently occupied by a church, but after checking the property records, it appears that one of the church’s buildings was constructed in 1925. Perhaps the original Paris building is still hanging on, as the theater was definitely in operation before 1932.

By 1941 it was known as the Park Theatre, and it continued until at least 1950.
