| Street View

The Carson Theatre was operating circa 1911-12. By 1941 it was operating as the Colonial Theatre, and continued until at least 1950 (when the street address is listed in the Film Daily Yearbook as 2009 E. Carson Street). After closing it became a bingo club.

In 1983 the site was occupied by Benny’s Flower Shop. The 2008 owner of the property from 2008-12 East Carson Street is listed as East Carson LLC.

There was a theater at 2008 E. Carson st.It was called the Colonial theater at one time. In the 1960’s it was a Bingo Hall. Benny’s Flower Shop was across the street. It is now completely remodeled and houses a trendy bar known as the Towne Tavern. I am sure this information is correct. My grandmother lived upstairs.
