Opened in 1947 by John and Marthann Staples, who had also operated Piggott’s Franklin Theatre (until it was closed in 1949), the Carolyn was named for the Staples' daughter in a contest.
Besides movies, the Carolyn often hosted live entertainment (Roy Orbison and Carl Perkins were among those to perform at the theater) as well as special events such as graduation ceremonies and church services.
The most notable event to take place at the Carolyn was the world premiere of the 1957 film, “A Face in the Crowd”, which was filmed in the Piggott area.
The theater closed in October 1987, still run by the Staples family. Any additional information on the Carolyn Theatre, including its current status, would be appreciated.
