The Paramount Theater was built by H.O. Wooten, who was responsible for building The Hotel Wooten. In 1930, the Paramount was finished and opened. Due to the stock market crash, the cost of the construction of the theater was financed by H.O. Wooten himself. Wooten paid a total of $400,000 of his own money to complete the construction. The theater is gorgeous on both the inside and the out. The high ceilings are adorned with twinkling stars and clouds that float across the the theater. The theater is embellished with ornate art deco sconces and hanging light fixtures. This theater is a picture of elegance and would be well worth the money spent to watch a classic flick at. Believe me when I say my photographs do not do the theater justice.
