90 years ago, The Paramount Theatre opened its doors for the first time showing silent movies. When The Paramount Theatre opened on March 1, 1928, it couldn't have been the best thing since sliced bread, because sliced bread wasn't even invented for a few more months.

Now, 90 years later, The Paramount and Seattle Theatre Group are celebrating nearly a century of film and performance in the historic building with a free concert with Death Cab For Cutie and a free outdoor celebration on 9th ave. between Pike and Pine all on June 23.
