The Paramount Theater is located in Burlington, NC. The lettering on the Paramount seems a little suspicious as it seems too small and far too modern a style for what was probably originally an opera house. 03-08

The Paramount originally opened its doors as The Grand movie palace in December 1928 and changed its name to The Paramount in 1929.
