  1. I was at the Paramount sitting on the right side close to the front when I felt someone shove me from behind. I turned around and there was no one even sitting around me at all.

  2. The picture of the lady in the white dress (the white lady) above the left main staircase at the Abilene paramount theater is known by all the paramount actors (such as myself) as the white lady who has haunted the theater since the theater had just opened. When she was a little girl, she went with her mother to the theater and did not like the play that they were seeing so she stormed out and threw a tantrum. Her mother chased after her and told her to sit in time out on a bench under an empty picture frame until she came to get her. The girl dried her tears after her mother left and her curiosity about the empty frame grew so she reached out to touch it. Then she got sucked in. Forever. And why is sue so pale you ask? SHE LEFT HER SKIN BEHIND. Still to this day she sits in the frame in the exact pose she had when she looked up at it to touch it.
