The last year at the Paramount theatre was an exciting year with the theme “The Summoning”. This year we summoned up our local theatre ghost ‘Frankie’ to help us place you inside the ancient evils of the theatre. 

The Summoning

Constructed in the early 1950’s, the Paramount Theater’s big screen entertained countless moviegoers both young and old. Sticky sodas, tangled film reels, chewed-up bubble gum, and fetid floods caused by overwhelmed toilets are just some of the many messes dealt with by Frankie, the resident caretaker of the Paramount. Frankie loved the theater, choosing to spend his life cleaning up after grubby guests in the name of fantastic cinema; it is no secret that his labours continued in the afterlife.

When the theater was sold over fifty-five years later, his soul was laid to rest, until now. The marquees are lit, the doors are open, but no longer do the stars of Hollywood grace his beloved silver screen. Deadmonton Haunted House calls the Paramount home for its third year in a row, and Frankie is not happy. Patrons have excitedly lined up not to revel in the glory of film, but to do little more than cause a ruckus. He has decided to summon ancient evils to drive away the current tenants.

The summoning of his poltergeist pals is paramount to Frankie’s plan for eternal peace — no more queues, no more messes, no more insolent guests, and most importantly, no screaming in the theater!
