Paramount Theatre

Since being built by Temple Buell in 1930, the gorgeous art-deco Paramount Theatre has had a storied history. The theater originally showed silent films, and it has a one-of-a-kind Wurlitzer twin-console organ that was designed to produce a variety of sound effects to accompany the films. And while the Paramount had a long run as one of the premier movie houses in the Rocky Mountain region, the venue, which can accommodate 1,900 people, has hosted an assortment of nationally recognized bands, comedians and other performances over the past few decades.
