Previous Names: Columbia Theatre
The Columbia Theater was opened on July 8, 1914. On March 14, 1927 it was renamed Paramount Theatre. By the early-1940’s it was operated by Paramount Pictures Inc. through their subsidiary Tracy Barham. This was the nicest of the three downtown theatres in Provo during my college days of the 1960’s. It was no palace, but felt more like a “real” theatre than the Academy Theatre around the corner, which was a preview of the mini-warehouse school of mall theatres, ambience-wise. Seems like it had a balcony. New multiplex facilities killed this one too as it was closed on October 16, 1998 with Chevy Chase in “Caddyshack”.
