The cinema was designed by London architect, Frank T. Verity in keeping with Sir Reginald Blomfield's new scheme for The Headrow. There was seating for 2,590, including 1,580 in the stalls and 1,010 in the balcony. The Paramount was billed on opening night as the 'Wonder Theatre of the North' and the Lord Mayor of Leeds Alderman, F. B. Simpson, performed the opening ceremony. The audience left the cinema to a rendition of 'Ilkla Moor Baht 'At' played by Rex O'Grady on the £20,000 Wurlitzer organ. The name changed to the Odeon on 15th April 1940.
