Wellington’s oldest cinema – The Paramount on Courtenay Place – will celebrate its centenary before it closes its doors.
Cinema Paramount (CPL) director Janet Carson said the theatre would close in September.
“After 100 years we’re gutted to be the ones closing the door … it’s hard,” Carson said.
It is a pity, but it is partly a victim of newer niche cinemas. On top of the Reading complex, Wellington has the Lighthouse, Embassy, Roxy, Empire, and Penthouse also.
