My uncle and father told me that this theater existed. When I was younger, the building was used as an auto body repair shop. I used to look in through the giant garage door. I could see where the projection booth was. The building was demolished sometime in the 1990’s and there is now a vacant lot where it used to stand.

From the time this theater opened Nov. 20, 1920, through 1929, it was called the American Theatre. From 1930 through its closing in 1958, it was the Paramount. I never attended the theater, but like John Schmude, I was intrigued in the 1970s to be able to stand behind the former theater when the giant garage door was open and to look into the auto body shop and to see how much the nearly empty shell betrayed its roots as a moviehouse. – Ed Blank
