The Februay 2, 1952, issue of Boxoffice Magazine had a brief item saying that this theater had opened recently. The manager was named Harold Warren, and the theater was being operated in partnership with Famous Players Canadian.

The Paramount has had new luxury recliner seats installed to replace the previous seating as part of recent renovations that have basically turned the auditorium inside into just another black box, just like many of the newer theatres opened by Landmark and Cineplex (along with renovations of some of their older theatres) in recent times. With the addition of the new seats, seating has been drastically reduced (based on a seat count in the picture below, according to this Facebook post) to 174 seats.

New photo in the photo section showing the new Landmark Cinemas signage, which was added in November 2019. As of that date, this theatre is now the Landmark Cinemas Paramount (which is now also the last theatre in the Landmark chain to bear the Paramount name).
