The Carver Theatre was the last one built in the African-American community in Orlando. Opening October 28, 1949 with John Wayne in “Red River”, the theatre featured a large elaborate marquee that was well lighted, with many lines for letters. The stage featured screen curtains. As the city began its integration process, business fell off to the point that it simply had to close during the early-1960’s. The building stood until early-2005, when it was demolished.
