Summary

Significance: The Paramount Theatre is one of the finest remaining examples of Art Deco design in the United States. It was one of the first Depression-era buildings to incorporate and integrate the work of numerous creative artists into its architecture and is particularly note-worthy for its successful orchestration of the various artistic disciplines into an original and harmonious whole. The theatre was painstakingly restored in 1973 and was entered in the National Register of Historic Places on August 14th of that year. On May 5, 1977, the Paramount Theatre was declared a National Historic Landmark.
