In advance of a celebration on September 23, the Paramount is installing its blade, or vertical sign, on the building's facade.

The new 50 foot blade is an exact replica of the original one which was taken down for restoration in the 1960s and then never seen again.

Installation began at 9 a.m. and took several hours.

The Paramount's relighting event will take place on September 23. For more information about the events you can go the Paramount's website here.
