I wonder if Carver was a later name for the Rainbow Theatre, opened in 1939, noted in the January 6, 1940 issue of Boxoffice?: “Waycross— H. G. Williams of Fitzgerald has opened the Rainbow, a colored house, seating 400.”

I think the other theatre in town that was running local plays was called THE RITZ? I got a tour of that theatre and took some shots.I THINK IT WAS the RITZ Theatre.

Unfortunately, the link above won’t let you enlarge the images. There are pictures of the Carver and the Lyric in Waycross, but until they fix the site you might want to use a magnifying glass:
