The Paramount is one of the 24 theaters featured in my new book, “After the Final Curtain: The Fall of the American Movie Theater,” which is available on Amazon or your local bookstore

Such a shame to see photos of a once great movie theatre.

I recently had the chance to photograph the Paramount. Here’s a link to my photos along with some history of the theater – Paramount Theatre

The Paramount apparently opened in 1930. An item in the May 12, 1958, issue of Boxoffice magazine contains the following line: “Dahmer joined Jefferson Amusement Co.-East Texas Theatres in 1930 as an usher at the opening of the Paramount Theatre in Marshall, Tex….”

A 1949 item in Boxoffice’s “From the Boxoffice Files (Twenty Years Ago)” feature said that West Texas Theatres had purchased a lot at Washington and Burleson in Marshall and would build a theater on the site.

Whoa – the bidding war must be on at the theater’s eBay listing. I’m getting tons of visits today (my link is the one listed above).
