Restoration At Paramount Reaches Milestone
A more than half a million dollar restoration project continues to move forward at Bristol’s Paramount Theater. Exactly one month after work began at Paramount Bristol, artisans have reinstalled newly restored murals in the historic theater. Two of six murals were taken down and shipped to Wisconsin for repairs and restoration after extensive water damage. Meanwhile, artists in Bristol have repaired damaged plaster, touched up paint and reworked peeling gold leaf. Officials with restoration project expect to be finished within a week and then will begin working in the lobby for an estimated three weeks. Funding for the restoration project was generated by Bristol’s Blue Stocking Club.
