The Paramount opened on April 21, 1932 with the movie "This is the Night" with Lily Damita and Cary Grant. The 1433-seat theater cost $250,000 to build in Depression money. It closed on February 20, 1975, and is now used as an office building. The main theater was later coverted to a two-story parking garage yet the old theater fresco ceilings still remain. ©2012 Michael Schumacher
