(NECN: Katelyn Tivnan, Worcester, Mass.) - A landmark on Franklin Street in Worcester is missing, and the building it adorned is due for rehabilitation.

The Paris Cinema sign, a fixture for decades, has come down and the building behind it is due for replacement.

The Paris opened as a movie theater in 1926 and in later years became an adult entertainment center before it closed in 2006. A developer plans to renovate the entire neighborhood with a mix of retail establishments and apartments and condos.

The sign will go up for auction next fall, but still can be seen at the architectural garage on Harrison Street in Worcester.
