The Paramount Theatre | Times Square

The Paramount Theatre was a noted 3,664 seat movie palace located at 43rd Street and Broadway in the Times Square district of New York City. Opened in 1926, it was premiere showcase and New York headquarters to Paramount Pictures. Adolph Zukor, founder of Paramount Famous Players Film Company, maintained an office in the building until his death in 1976. Paramount Theatre eventually became a popular live performance venue. The theater was closed in 1964 and its space converted to office and retail use. The tower which housed it, known as the Paramount Building located at 1501 Broadway, is in commercial use as an office building and is still home to Paramount Pictures offices, and remains a Times Square landmark.
