The neoclassical-revival Paramount on Congress Avenue is 100 years old, this year. Its brick facade, building-wide lighted marquee, and recessed entrance dominate the stretch of Congress Avenue leading up to the Capitol building. Its ornate interior is the city's most beautiful, featuring intricate murals and carvings. The Paramount serves as a venue for premieres of local and national significance, and for screenings during the city’s many film festivals. The beloved marquee often commemorates important local events.
