The building sold at a sharp discount from its $23 million listing price in 2015. The Art Deco-style building was built in 1945. Under different owners, the property had been used as an adult movie house, a nightclub, and a photography and film studio, according to the Miami Herald.

It had a capacity to hold 1,200 patrons, and could be used for any type of event, including theatrical productions, launch parties and dances. A liquor store, Surf Liquors, sits next to the Paris Theater.

Massa Investment Group secured a $15.2 million loan from IberiaBank to acquire the property, records show.

Massa Investment Group specializes in private equity, real estate construction and hospitality, according to its website.
