The Great Houdini, Ethel Barrymore, and Will Rogers?these are just a few of the legends who have graced the stage of the Paramount Theatre. Since it first opened as The Playhouse Theatre in 1914, the venue has been a go-to destination for entertainment. Vaudeville stars performed live revues throughout the 1920s, and celluloid icons appeared on the theater's movie screen in the 1930s, '40s, and '50s. Not even the dwindling film industry and rampant platform heels of the '70s could lower the curtain forever. After closing down in 1975, the Paramount went through dramatic renovations that modernized the space while preserving its vintage charm. The building reopened in 2000, and today continues to welcome acts as diverse as rock concerts and film series beneath its ornately stenciled ceilings.
