Paramount Theatre

During the mid-1960’s I saw a 1940’s photo of Cushing’s Paramount Theatre. It’s Art Deco style marquee and attraction poster boards were so massive they covered over the entire theatre facade. A towering upright sign left no doubt that this was a Paramount operation.

At some point in time Paramount must have given their theatre an Art-Deco facelift. Above 1936 photos exhibit the original Spanish Colonial look. Type in word “paramount”,

Cushing’s second Paramount Theatre replaced an earlier Paramount (aka Rialto and Columbia) theater that burned down on April 20, 1931 also at 109 East Broadway. Griffith Amusement replaced the facility with a new Paramount designed by its architect Gates Corrigan. The new Paramount launched with “The Man in Possession” on August 5, 1931. The Paramount went out of business in 1947. It was completely gutted and became a Western Auto hardware store. The building still stands unrecognizable as a former movie house except at its roof line. (Technically, it wasn’t a Paramount theatre and was a Griffith Amusement venue.)
