Historic theater in Rutland set for reopening after repairs
RUTLAND, Vt. (AP) — A Rutland theater is set to reopen after repairing a support beam issue in its roofing.
The Paramount Theatre closed temporarily in May due to unspecified roof issues. Board of directors President Matt Levandowski says a split supporting beam in the roof was the cause of the issues, and it was due to excess snowfall in the past winter.
Levandowski says the theater plans to have all repairs done by Sept. 1.
The Rutland Herald reports Paramount Programming Director Eric Mallette confirmed Friday that the theater has received a certificate of occupancy.
The Paramount was built in 1913, and later was a movie theater when it closed in 1975. The theater stayed closed for more than 20 years before reopening at the end of a major restoration in 2000.
