Here’s a glimpse of the auditorium of the Carmen Theatre in Boxoffice, August 16, 1941. The caption says the house is a slightly smaller twin of of the Civic Theatre in Detroit, built the same year and designed by the same architect, Kenneth S. Frazier.

Boxoffice didn’t give the seating capacity in this particular item, but judging from the photos it doesn’t look as though it could have held the 1,490 seats currently listed above. Still, an item in the May 28, 1955 Boxoffice says that it had 1,500 seats. If it was enlarged some time after its opening I’ve been unable to find anything about such an event in Boxoffice.
