Photos: Behind the scenes at the landmark Paramount Theatre, artifacts from 1930
In this week's Westword cover story, "It's a Mall World After All," we recognize the 30th anniversary of the 16th Street Mall by visiting some of the most important sites and looking back on its history in the heart of downtown Denver. As part of this effort, we took a tour of the landmark Paramount Theatre, which first opened its doors half a century before construction on the Mall began and still stands as the only historic theater of its kind in Denver. Here, we take you behind the scenes at the Paramount, which is home to artifacts that date all the way back to its first movie screening on August 29, 1930.
