Fundraiser For Paramount Theatre Goes This Friday

You've seen the "I Love The Paramount" buttons that have been decorating jackets and lapels over the last few weeks -- now comes the next step in Uptown Saint John's bid to save the Paramount Theatre.

A fundraiser called A Night For The Paramount is taking place this Friday at the Chinese Cultural Centre featuring several local musicians, including John Morrison and The Earthbound Trio.

Uptown Saint John General Manager Peter Asimakos tells CHSJ News the Paramount will fill a void in the city as both Harbour Station and the Imperial Theatre can be too large to host certain events.
Uptown Saint John is hoping to raise enough money to turn the abandoned theatre into an arts and entertainment complex.  The one year option on the building will be over at the end of the month.
