The Carrollton Theatre was opened prior to 1916. It was destroyed by fire in 1936. It was rebuilt and reopened in 1936, located on Carrollton Avenue at Canal Street, it was a classic Art Deco style house. It was unfortunately renovated in the 1960’s thus destroying the classic 1930’s entrance. (Why did people think this was progress?)
It eventually ended its run as an off the wall college house showing Marx Bros. movies until the wee hours. Before Katrina, it was a banquet/wedding reception hall. This theater took between eight and ten feet of water after Katrina passed. It is now in use as a medical center for senior citizens.
