Welcome to The Paramount Theatre!

The Paramount Theatre in Port Arthur (now Thunder Bay) opened on December 27, 1948. It was considered a modern facility, with special seats for the hard-of-hearing. The original projector, though not in use, still resides in the Projection booth in the Upper Theatre.

Our theatre seats 230 people and boasts a full stage for live performances along with a top-notch audio system that offers up to the best movie theatre experience. The venue continues to host movies, festivals, family parties, conferences, and theatre events.

The Paramount Theatre is a community venue. Our mission is to continue the tradition of offering a theatre production experience to everyone. Our team wants to encourage new talent and celebrate the amazing culture of Northwestern Ontario to share our space. We offer realistic pricing and continual participation in all aspects of creative and artistic ventures.

Paramount Theatre events currently scheduled will continue during the renovations. We will do our best to provide our patrons with clean and safe access to our theatre, studio, washroom facilities and concession services during this time.

We thank you in advance for your patience during our construction phase as we work to bring you an updated facility! More details to be announced…
