Time Out says

Art Deco-era starchitect Timothy L. Pflueger designed Oakland’s grand Paramount Theatre in 1931, assembling the talents of artists from many backgrounds to capture the splendor of the age. After its life as a movie palace fizzled out in the 1970s, the long-neglected building was embraced by the Oakland Symphony, the City of Oakland and numerous private donors who ensured its restoration and preservation. Today, this National Historic Landmark is open for tours, and a full schedule of live concerts, theater and—yes—movies.
