Demolition work continued Tuesday on the old Paramount Theater in downtown Youngstown.

Most of the front façade is now gone from the building. A close look at the video shows the movie projector is still in place, pointing down towards the screen.

Crews were shooting water into the building to keep the dust down.  Nearly two dozen people were there watching the demolition and taking pictures one last time.

On Monday night, crews from Cleveland were using a crane to lift a steel awning off the front of the building on Hazel Street.  Construction workers also were removing the bricks from the top of the building on Monday.

The work is expected to last about 90 days.

Once the demolition is completed in September, the city will put up a parking lot.
