Paramount Pictures Australia has closed its Perth office and eliminated the sales function in its Brisbane office, while marketing for South Australia is now being handled out of Victoria.

As a result, seven permanent employees have departed.

Paramount Pictures Australia MD Mike Selwyn described the moves as a realignment, with additional roles being created in the Sydney head office.

Sales for Queensland and Wa are now being handled out of Sydney but the Brisbane office will continue to run marketing in that State. Paramount was the last of the major distributors to maintain an office in Perth.
