Paramount Theatre

The famous Paramount Theatre in Youngstown, Ohio was one of the most opulent theatre’s in all of the Midwest.  Originally a vaudeville house which opened its doors in 1908, the theater was purchased by Paramount Pictures in 1918 and converted into a state of the art movie theater with that held 1,700 people. Paramount spent $200,000 renovating the theater and modernizing the audio system.  The theater remained a popular attraction until the end of the 1960′s, when the steel industry (and general economy) took a turn for the worse.
