The Para­mount was converted into a gymnasium in the 1960s and was utilized by many genera­tions of Blackbirds basketball champions. Currently used as a multi-purpose space, much of its original luster and Rococo-style architectural details have been preserved. The original 1920s Wurlitzer organ–one of only two of the model ever built—remains operational and can still been heard (and felt) throughout campus during regular tuning exercises.  Long Island University President, Dr. Kimber­ly Cline is instrumental in her support of the project stating, “The renovation of Brooklyn Paramount is a major milestone in the history of LIU and it brings our commitment to the arts—and our role in the arts community—to an entirely new level for our students, faculty, and alumni, and solidifies our role as a major cultural driver in Brooklyn.”
