The Carlton Theatre was opened in 1938. Seating was provided for 750 in the orchestra level and 100 in the balcony. In 1941 it was listed as (Closed), but had re-opened by 1943. The Carlton Theatre was still open in 1950 and operated by Dickinson Theatres. It was then taken over by Mid-Central Theatres and was renamed Co-Ed Theatre.

In the 50’s and 60’s, the theater was known as the Co-Ed. I often attended the Co-Ed Theater as a young boy and teenager.

This theatre was named after Carlton Dickinson brother to Glen Dickinson Jr. He was killed in a car accident before the theatre was built.
