Florida Church Ends Classic Film Series with Lorre

On Thursday, April 5, 2018, the Paramount Church, located in Palm Beach, Florida, ends its annual classic movie series for the 2017-2018 season with My Favorite Brunette (1947), starring Bob Hope, Dorothy Lamour, and Peter Lorre.

The program begins at 6:30 pm, with entertainment featuring Beatriz Loo, Christian recording artist.

The event is free, and everyone is invited. After the movie, refreshments will be served in the church fellowship hall. Donations are appreciated to cover the cost of refreshments, as well as licensing the film.

The Paramount Church is located at 139 North County Road #31, at the corner of North County Road and Sunrise Avenue, in Palm Beach, Florida.

Parking is available in the lot adjoining the church. The entrance to the parking lot is on Sunset Avenue. Parking is also available along the street in front of the church. Directions are available on the church’s website.

The Paramount Church is located in what was once the Paramount Theatre, which opened in 1927 as one of the grandest movie palaces in Palm Beach, Florida, including 26 private boxes in the balcony and floor-to-ceiling murals of fish swimming through seaweed. In 1974, the Paramount Theatre was designated as an historic place, and in 1982, a Town Landmark.

The movies ended in 1980. In 1985 the theater was renovated as office space. The Paramount Church now occupies the area that was once the stage, orchestra pit, and screen.

The church’s classic movie series begins every December and runs the first Thursday of every month until the beginning of May. Films in the series are preceded by a presentation of a scene from the movie, a sing-a-long, a concert, or an historical perspective of the movie.
