Originally designed for the silent movies of the time, the Paramount houses a one of a kind Wurlitzer twin-console organ designed to produce varied sound effects in accompaniment with the picture show. More than 1600 pipes generate sounds of orchestral and percussion instruments as well as special effects such as train whistles, horses' hooves and pounding surf. Despite the fact that the introduction of sound pictures quickly eliminated the need for musical accompaniment, the organ remains as one of the largest to have ever been installed in the Rocky Mountain area and is joined by its sister in New York City's Radio City Music Hall as one of only two remaining in the United States. The Paramount Theatre was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980 and was declared an historic landmark by the City of Denver in 1988. Today, The Historic Paramount Theatre remains a vibrant, multi-event facility where Denver Metro residents enjoy a wide variety of entertainment options each year. From rock concerts to dance performances, comedy to lectures and movies to Wurlitzer organ performances, the Historic Paramount Theatre remains a top choice in Denver's entertainment scene.
