The Paramount Theatre opened as a single screen house in 1947. At at that time the operator was the F.G. Spencer theater chain. It became part of the Empire Theatres chain. In October 2013 it was taken over by Cineplex Entertainment. In 2022 it was taken over by an independent operator and renamed Amherst Theatre.

Very surprised this theatre is still going. This is likely (almost certainly) the grungiest theatre Cineplex owns in Eastern Canada. I doubt it would be replaced, and customers would just be directed to Moncton or Truro.

It appears that Cineplex finally threw in the towel on this theatre and spun it off - it is now called the Amherst Theatre, and their new website ( states “In 2022 the chain (sic) was sold to the local landlord Casey Realty ltd. and rented to The Amherst Theatre ltd.” The website is pretty barebones, but according to CinemaClock they appear to be currently showing “Avatar”, “Puss and Boots” and “I Wanna Dance with Somebody”…
