The Leslie Theater was opened around 1927. In editions of Film Daily Yearbook between 1941 and 1950 there is only one theatre listed in Denham Springs (population 1,233); the 348 seat Leslie Theater, Range Avenue.

The Leslie Theater was re-named Carol Theater in 1954.

The former Carol Theater is now an antique mall.

This site would appear to confirm the Leslie as the predecessor of the Carol:

Unless two theaters in Denham Springs have been turned into antique stores. Not likely.

Leslie Theater opened around 1927, as per the Baton Rouge Advocate and by the 1950s it was owned by Mrs. Violet Muse Clark, who also owned the Joan Drive-In Theatre in Denham Springs near the Amite River Bridge on US 190. Both were involved in a bankruptcy sale in late 1953. The Leslie Theater was rechristened the Carol Theater in 1954. The Joan Theatre later became a commercial building supply site.
