Description
To serve the public with arts, entertainment, and community events in the most beautiful historic setting in Indiana.
Background
The historic Paramount is one of few “atmospheric” theaters left in the nation. The Paramount Theatre Centre opened August 20, 1929 to great fanfare. Designed by noted architect and visionary, John Eberson, the atmospheric theater increased economic prosperity in downtown Anderson. Many years and many owners later, the Paramount Theatre had deteriorated. The building sat empty for nearly five years and in 1989 was doomed for destruction, fated to become a parking lot. A group of individuals, who would later become known as the Paramount Heritage Foundation, banded together to save the building. No expense was spared in the restoration to its 1929 brilliance. Now much more than a movie theater, the Paramount is the centerpiece of a rebirth of arts and culture taking place in Anderson.
