The Paramount theatre is one of the finest showplaces of the nation and the leading example of Moderne Art-Deco design. The 3,000 seat movie palace opened in 1931, and remains a significant National Historic Landmark and an architectural marvel. Public tours are given twice monthly, but we have arranged for a private tour for just MBCA members only at 1pm that will last about 1 and 1/2 hours. Matías Bombal, our president, is a former employee of this theatre, and with his associates you will have a tour of this historic structure that the regular tours will never equal, including a rare chance to hear the theatre's "Mighty" Wurlitzer theatre pipe organ in person.
