I often ride by the area where I believe this theater used to be (also other long-gone theaters around this section of town, such as THE BOSTWICK). I would love to see some old photos taken of these theaters in the context of their original neighborhood locations. There is simply nothing there to denote that they ever even existed.

The theatre opened as the Paramount on August 26, 1921. It was the Colony between 1925 and 1942 when it became the Parkway. It closed on June 7, 1952 and the building was converted for commercial use.
