Paramount Theatre

The Paramount Theatre opened around 1951 on Main Street in downtown Moncton. Originally a single-screen venue with 1,116 seats, it was divided in 1979 into two theatres seating 418 and 248 respectively. Famous Players ran the Paramount throughout its existence.

The Paramount Theatre closed in 1996 when the Famous Players 8 (now Cineplex Trinity Drive which has its own page on Cinema Treasures) opened. The auditorium was demolished in early-2020. The front theatre entrance was occupied by a sports bar and restaurant called Bubba Ray’s which closed in March 2017. By 2022 the space is a Happy Craft Brewing brewdog bar.

According to this CBC article from 2020, the Paramount Theatre was mostly demolished in early-2020 with plans for redevelopment of the site:

Moncton builders consider delaying projects as pandemic continues

The old Paramount lobby, however, has been retained and is now the home of the Happy Craft Brewing brewpub (per current Google Maps street views).
