Theater is alive and well. The beautiful Paramount Theater, on the National Register of Historic Places, opened in 1928 and then, as now, offered a full event schedule. Check out their Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/Paramounttheatrecr/) or their website (http://www.paramounttheatrecr.com) for this year's scheduled performance.
