The building at 711 East Washington Street currently housing the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ of the Apostolic Faith is most likely the former Carver Theatre; its address was most likely renumbered after it ceased functioning as a theater. The lack of windows, wooden doors with diamond-shaped windows, and the spacing between the two sets of doors (where a ticket booth may have been located at one time) give this church building the look of a converted theater.
