KAMLOOPS - Kamloops residents were told the city's downtown Paramount Theatre would be ceasing its operations this week, but shortly after the announcement the Kelson Group stepped in to purchase the property.

Tomorrow, April 18, the Kelson Group will be announcing more details about their collaboration with the community and the future of the theatre.
