Paranormal investigators visit Paramount

Team looks into historic theater's alleged hauntings


She and others also believe a former stagehand named Charlie still hangs out at the theater he loved when he was alive.

“It’s not unusual to have those kinds of stories with historic theaters,” she said. “It’s part of the romance of the theater.”

Jones Burris said in the five years she’s worked there, a handful of events have happened to her. She once was alerted that someone tried to use the elevator emergency line. When she went to check, no one was there.

When she was first hired as the director, she said the motion detectors went off a lot. Several times she walked throughout the building with Anderson Police Department officers but they couldn’t find anyone.

“Instead of being afraid, someone can just say, ‘It’s Charlie,’” Jones Burris said. “They’re willing to believe that. It’s a theater, we’re all dramatic.”

Schuck, who also describes herself as a medium, said she didn’t detect any malicious entities in the theater.

Throughout the investigation, she said she could hear voices speaking and see shadows of possible spirits, which is part of the reason it was important for the team to document the cars’ beams reflecting in the building. The team doesn’t want to be quick to think everything is supernatural, so they debunk as much as possible.

Schuck said she can usually hear more than most people, but her fellow investigators often pick up on things as well.

“You learn to tag everything,” she said. “If you heard something, that’s where scientific approach comes in. If we tag someone’s talking, we know it’s not an EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomenon).”

Her husband is the technical manager of the group and filmed much of the investigation. Between video and audio recordings, it can take at least two weeks to go through all the evidence.

    Cathy Hensley’s never been much of a drinker. It wasn’t something that interested her very much, so it seemed unfathomable that she would ever run a winery. But after her son Eric offered her and her husband, Duke, some wine he made, it changed things.
