ST. CLOUD - The Paramount Theatre in downtown St. Cloud is celebrating a big birthday.  Mayor Dave Kleis says the iconic theatre is turning 90 years old tomorrow (Saturday).

Kleis says St. Cloud residents paid fifty cents a piece and packed the theater to see the movie starring Lillian Gish.

Paramount officials will mark the occasion on Wednesday by showing a digitally restored DVD of the film.  The showing will be free starting at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday.
