PARAMOUNT THEATRE — The Final Curtain
FULL STORY HERE:
This Adamesque architectural masterpiece was built during the year of 1917, finally opening its doors as The Liberty Theatre in 1918. This theatre was a monumental, ornately brilliant structure designed by Detroit architect C. Howard Crane along with associate architects Stanley & Scheibel, overlooking the streets of Central Youngstown. The exterior was lined with white glazed Terra Cotta ornamentation, complete with swags and pilasters, while inside, a beautiful mezzanine hung over the wide and elegant auditorium. A catwalk once lifted brilliantly above the stage; now only collects pigeons and rust.
Originally, the theatre could account for a crowd anywhere from the size of 1600-1700 and can now house about 20 times as many pigeons. The interior was of Adamesque, or Adam style (an 18th century neoclassical style of interior design and architecture, as practiced by the three Adam brothers from Scotland.) This neoclassical beauty was opened as a Vaudeville house, until purchased and renamed to the Paramount Theatre in 1929 by the Paramount Pictures corporation shortly after The McCrory Group purchasing 60% of the stock for 9,000 in 1922.
Vaudeville was a theatrical genre of variety entertainment popular in the United States and Canada from the early 1880’s until the early 1930’s. Each performance was made up of a series of separate, unrelated acts grouped together on a common bill. The Paramount company went on to build further into the theatre and modernize it in numerous ways; one among these being the spending of 0,000 on a brand new sound system, allowing them to present the popular new ‘talkies’ (sound-synced films/talking pictures; typically shorts.)
The theatre survived, rich in visitors and popularity from 1933-1960 due to film becoming the staple of entertainment for America, and it was shortly after this long journey through years to 1960 when Central Youngstown would finally take a dive heading for the worst.
In 1976, the final movie was screened. A Bill Cosby film entitled “Let’s Do it Again.” Quickly after, the final curtain fell with a shuttering, heart-breaking crash as The Paramount closed its doors for the last time and was left a host to the elements around us, quickly falling into a state of disrepair.
Later on, in 1997 Ohio One sold the property on land contract to Manhattan Theatre Proprietorship; once again no financial plan could be implemented, and it was sold once again April 21, 2006 to Liberty/Paramount Theatre Youngstown, LLC an investment group lead by Grande Venues Inc.
This theatre’s story still clings to the lips of the asphalt, dirt, and wood that it was built upon. It may not say much to deaf ears, but those listening can hear its stories, and unbarred eyes can see its beauty, while those with a padlocked perception of the world around us may never get to see all that it has to offer. Important stories like this should be heard, and not just heard but truly listened to. The imagery obtained from wandering our minds of the past can be a small escape from our own lives while remaining part of the story, but normally sits an unused pallet of colors.
This structure remains the epitome of beauty of elegance, and the beauty of decay working hand-in-hand to create an awe-inspiring scene. The ceiling and walls surround us, and it’s as if a kaleidoscope had exploded, painting itself onto our surroundings as we stand in fascination below the theatre balcony. A desolate house void of audience, a quiet proscenium now lying beneath only the falling of history; each crack in the paint growing as its stories unfold into our eyes. Even with chapped lips, the Paramount continues to tell of its adventures. Since being left to fall, it has spent all of its time rehearsing the stories of its life for an audience of none, but continues with strength for those few that care to come by and listen. We need to remember in our own lives, that is very important.
