Barry commented about Paramount Theatre on Jan 14, 2003 at 4:47 pm

The Paramount (originally the Sherman Theater on Saint Germain Street) opened in 1921. It was renovated very extensively and reopened in 1998. It now has 700 seats from the original 1200 and is used many times a week now with various plays, musical and dance shows, among other sorts of entertainment. The arts center is flourishing too with regular classes and exhibitions. Also the offices of the local arts and playhouses are here. These include the Central Minnesota Children’s Theater, County Stearns Theatrical Company, and the Troupe Theater.
