PARMA, Ohio – Ever since Parma Theater closed its doors in September, residents and businesses have felt a void in Parma’s Polish Village neighborhood.

Parma councilwoman Deborah Lime is doing her part to save the historic building near Ridge and Snow roads.

Lime introduced a resolution at Monday’s Parma City Council meeting to begin the process of making Parma Theater a historic preservation site at the local level.

“The idea behind it is to save the theater, to save it at the building that it is now and the great building that it once was for the community and to keep a part of Parma’s history here in the community,” Lime said.”

Constructed in 1936, the Parma closed in 2012 due to low attendance. Later that year, during November, the Parma was set ablaze and the fire was later ruled arson. Visit the official site of the Parma here.
