The Paramount Theater, the first picture showhouse in Fillmore, was built in 1916 by Noble Peterson and his wife, Josie Melville Peterson. They later sold the theater to Melvin and Lillian Smart. After 1922, Marvin and Lynn Peterson operated the theater and changed its name to Lynn Theatre. After the Petersons built the Avalon Theatre in 1926, the Lynn Theatre was taken over by an adjacent garage. The theater was located on the east side of Main Street, where Warner Motors later stood (70 North Main Street.)[1, 2, 3]
