The Paramount Theatre (Official)
Architects: Leo W. Schaefer
Previous Names: Sherman Theatre
Built in 1921, the Paramount Theatre is a true classic. Originally erected as the Sherman Theatre, it was operated by the Finkelstein & Ruben chain. In 1929 they were taken over by Publix and the picture palace was renovated in 1930 for talkies and renamed the Paramount Theatre on August 1, 1930. By the 1960’s, the Paramount Theatre’s ticket sales had fallen sharply and the theatre had begun to deteriorate. The theatre eventually closed and then fell victim to fire in 1985.
For 15 years, the theatre was raising funds and undergoing extensive renovations, which were completed in 2010.
