The Paramount Theater (Official)
Previously operated by: Paramount-Publix
Architects: George W. Leslie Rapp
Firms: Rapp & Rapp
Opened in 1931 by the Paramount-Publix circuit, the 1,300 seat Paramount Theater survived two fire scares before closing in 1974.
In 1992, a nonprofit organization led by concerned citizens purchased the theater. After a $16 million dollar restoration, the Paramount re-opened December 15, 2004, as a 1,100 seat performing arts center, with films returning as part of its programming. On December 5, 2015, the 33ft long vertical (blade) sign was refurbished and reinstalled on the front of the building. It was lit for the first time since the 1960’s.
