HISTORY OF PARAMOUNT THEATER MOVIE CLASSICS
In 2002 we were asked by some Town residents to show “Old Movies” as a community service to the Town of Palm Beach. On November 3, 2002 we showed “Beau Geste,” the first movie ever shown at the Paramount Theatre on January 9, 1927.
It was a full house.
In the audience that evening was Palm Beach Town resident, Howard Minsky, the producer of the blockbuster film “Love Story.” Howard suggested that we show another film the following month … “IT,” the 1928 silent film starring Clara Bow. Again the response was emphatically supportive. So Howard suggested we do it again the following month, this time showing “Camille,” starring Greta Garbo and Robert Taylor. Every seat was taken.
Thus, our movie classics began, showing old classic films the first Thursday of each month, December through May.
Most films are preceded from 6:30-7:00 p.m. by a presentation of a scene from the movie, a sing-a-long, a concert, or a historical perspective of the film. Donations are appreciated to cover the costs of licensing and refreshments afterwards in the church fellowship hall.
Come and enjoy the old classics!
