"Steeped in Russian flavor."
New York Times

The F.M. Kirby Center for the Performing Arts first opened in 1938 as the Comerford Movie Theater, featuring a variety of films from that era. Renamed the Paramount Theater in 1949, it continued to operate as a movie house until the late 1970s when it began hosting concerts and boxing matches. Although the building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978, it continued to deteriorate and was on the verge of demolition until the mid-1980s when it was saved and renovated thanks to public and private donations. Today, the Kirby Center hosts a variety of performances such as music concerts, theater productions, and dance productions; upcoming performances will feature Tony Bennett, Willie Nelson, and Riverdance.
