Paramount Theater

-A A +A
1930, Emile Weil. 314 N. Washington Ave.

The Paramount is located on Marshall’s primary downtown commercial thoroughfare. Weil, of New Orleans, designed the theater with a diminutive Spanish Revival facade consisting of a centerpiece of small blind arches and finials and a marquee sandwiched between two storefronts. The lobby extends back through the depth of the retail stores and connects with a massive, barrel-vaulted atmospheric-styled auditorium seating 1,500.
