The Paragon Theatre was built in 1952 and operated as a movie theatre until 1964 or 1965. The building was closed from 1965 until 1978.

In the 1970’s Beaver County Recreation and Parks Administrator George Baker had a dream of a regional arts centre for the people. With the help of numerous civic – minded individuals and Beaver Country’s purchase of the Paragon Movie Theatre in Holden for the princely sum of $1.00 the dream took on a life of its own.

The Beaver Regional Arts Society was formed in 1976. Its mandate was to manage the new 285 seat Beaver Regional Arts Centre facility, which was formally opened on March 17, 1979, making the dream a reality.

From 1979 to 2016 the Beaver Regional Arts Centre was operated by the Beaver Regional Arts Society.

From 2016 until the present, the facility is being operated by Beaverhill Players who changed the name back to the Paragon Theatre.


It was a movie theatre for 13 years It was unused for 13 years It was the Beaver Regional Arts Centre for 37 years Now has been the Paragon Theatre for 3 years

Members of the Beaver Regional Arts Society were undoubtedly responsible for the successful operation of the facility and keeping it open for all those years. The Beaver Regional Arts Society now rents the theatre from Beaverhill Players to host the annual season series of four performances.
