Paramount Theatre

The Victor Theatre was opened in the mid-1920’s and was designed by the Boller Brothers seating 322. In 1932 it was renamed Paramount Theatre and was operated by Commonwealth Amusement by 1941 and they continued to operate it until at least 1950.

The theatre was located on the corner so it had a corner entrance with the box office to the right side. There is a small lobby and concession area with one aisle leading into the auditorium. Some attractive plaster work lines the ceiling corners of both the lobby and the auditorium. The Paramount Theatre remained open, serving the small town of Rock Port until the mid-2000’s. It had been demolished by 2020.

This theatre dates back at least to the mid-1920’s when it was known as the Victor Theater. It became the Paramount in 1932. Should have an AKA Victor Theatre.
