I heard the organ from this theatre many times when it was in a pizza parlor in Seattle, Washington. Have not heard what happened to it after the parlor closed.

The MGM Theatre Photograph and Report form for the Paramount in Salem has an indistinct photo of the entrance taken in 1941. The Report states that the theatre has been presenting MGM product for 15 years, that it was built in 1927; that it’s in DeLuxe condition; and that it has 1764 seats on the main floor and 423 in the balcony, total: 2187.

That’s a great history! Thank you for remembering so many details and telling the story. Are there any photos published of the Salem theatres?
