No pics, but remember seeing “New Faces of 1952” there when I was at SIU in the mid 50s. Only place showing “art films” at the time.

Archives are incomplete, Opened as Rodgers before 1938 and closed in 1957.

The Film Daily Yearbooks 1941 and 1943 give the Barth Theater a seating capacity of 700.

By the 1950 edition of F.D.Y.B, seating is given as 752, it was known as the Rogers Theater by then and the street address given is 207 Monroe St, Carbondale, IL.
