casting call: looking to interview this Saturday those familiar with Paramount Theater

Last weekend's recordings of personal stories tied to the Paramount Theater in downtown youngstown were an amazing success.

It's just stunning, when family history and city history and even world history come together.

for example, were you one of the moviegoers at the Paramount when they announced the U.S. had been attacked at Pearl Harbor?

Do you or does someone you know, a friend or a family member perhaps, have the ability to contribute stories to once-in-a-lifetime oral history project?

A few slots still exist this Saturday from 11am to 4pm for people to share their favorite stories about downtown youngstown and the Paramount Theater.

Please call the McDonough Museum at 330.941.1400 to discuss how you or your loved ones/friends can contribute to this outstanding project, such that generations in the future can listen to your perspective.

The content will be used for an upcoming gallery event from Jan 13 to Feb 3, as the Museum will be transformed into a celebration of all things Paramount. Very cool stuff.
