New photo of the Paramount added in the photo section. The movie listed on its marquee (partially obscured by the Safeway store sign in front of it) is Lawrence of Arabia, indicating that the photo was taken around 1962, the year of the movie’s release.

One more note to add – the Paramount should now be listed as Demolished, as its former site is now the location of the Red Deer Remand Centre.
