Kirby Center Description

Comerford Theater, also known as the Paramount Theater and now known as the F.M. Kirby Center for the Performing Arts, is a historic movie theater located at Wilkes-Barre, Luzerne County, Pennsylvania. It was built in 1937, and is an Art Deco-Moderne style theater building. The building takes an irregular trapezoidal shape. It is of steel frame and brick construction with a four bay wide, terra cotta and marble front facade. The front facade features a stylized ziggurat composition, a central tower, corrugated steel decoration, and a marquee.

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.

The Capitol Theatre, also on Public Square, was built in 1920. It was renamed the Comerford Theatre after the original Comerford was renamed the Paramount in the 1940s. The second Comerford was multiplexed and renamed the Barre East West Loge in the 1970s and demolished soon after.
