Relive the Past at The Paramount
Originally opened in 1929, The Paramount Theatre Centre & Ballroom has been restored to its early grandeur. Built to resemble a 16th century Spanish courtyard, the terra cotta roof tiles and alabaster balconies take you back in time. The ceiling is beautifully painted as a rose-blue sky with clouds. The Paramount’s Grand Page Theatre Pipe Organ has also undergone extensive renovation and repair adding to the ambience. Check The Paramount’s schedule to find out what special movie or concert will be appearing while you’re in town.
