Information for this tour was contributed by Keith Spofford.

I went to all these theatres as a kid, the Paramount being the largest and most grand with a real organ that came up out of the floor. The last movie to play there (sadly) was "Midnight Cowboy" starring Dustin Hoffman and Jon Voigt, I know because I was at the LAST show before the theatre closed for good.
