Darkness will end tonight at the old Paramount Theater in Cheyenne. Today, the theater is called the Paramount Cafe and the marquee will be lit at 5:30 p.m.

The marquee has been under construction over the past few weeks and tonight will be the big pay off. The owners of the Paramount Cafe are inviting you to join them as they light up a part of Capitol Ave when the turn on the lights of the old marquee.

The Paramount Theater was said to have been built in 1904 and was a premier theater in Cheyenne. Unfortunately, a fire in 1980 has taken out the theater, but the building houses a popular coffee shop, office space and retail stores.

The lighting of the marquee will take place at 1907 Capitol Ave tonight, Nov 16, at 5:30 p.m.
