The Carver Theater opened on September 29, 1950 with John Wayne in “The Sands of Iwo Jima” and “Unknown Island”. It was named after the famed negro educator and scientist George Washington Carver. It was built specifically to cater for a negro audience and was designed by Dallas based architect Jack Corgan. All seating was on a single floor.
The Carver Theater closed around 1980. The building was last used as a health clinic until it was flooded by hurricane Katrina. The Carver Theater was renovated and reopened as a live performance venue on April 30, 2014.
