(Currently visible from Fisher Street.) Originally stood at 494 Nutt Road (near Bridge Street). 90 seats, one of only four remaining Paramounts with distinctive glass-block corners and attractive circle accents pressed into metal. Closed since 2008.

The diner was purchased by the end of March 2017 by Tom Kline, and as of 6 April was boatwrapped and being prepped for shipment to New Jersey for restoration and eventual placement in Long Island, most likely for private use. (Thanks to Beth Lennon.)
