Paramount Theatre

Construction of Port Arthur’s deluxe movie theatre, designed by architect Jay Isadore English, began in 1947; it opened in December 1948. The theatre co-hosted the 1963 world premiere of Walt Disney’s The Incredible Journey, an adaptation of Port Arthur resident Sheila Burnford’s classic novel of the same name. The theatre’s original balcony layout, seating and projector remain in place today.
