The Olympia Theatre, located at 140-144 Temple Street in New Haven, Connecticut, opened on September 13, 1915, seated 2,373, and was equipped with a Wurlitzer theatre pipe organ. It changed its name when purchased by Paramount Studios to the Paramount Theatre circa 1930. The theatre was razed, as many of the grand silent area theaters have been following decades of declining ticket sales, circa 1970. The current retail/office building on the location is now known as the Olympia Building.
