According to the Balaban & Katz Foundation website, this was, at least at one time, a B & K operated theater.

The Paramount was built in 1929, and was a huge theater. It took up most of the quarter block it was on, and was 2-3 stories tall. It’s shown on the maps as ‘fireproof construction’, with the auditorium being brick. The balcony was large, with a concave front. There was a large stage, and scenery is noted even on the 1952 map. It’s now a parking lot for the ugly bank on the corner.
