This site would appear to confirm the Leslie as the predecessor of the Carol:

Unless two theaters in Denham Springs have been turned into antique stores. Not likely.

Leslie Theater opened around 1927, as per the Baton Rouge Advocate and by the 1950s it was owned by Mrs. Violet Muse Clark, who also owned the Joan Drive-In Theatre in Denham Springs near the Amite River Bridge on US 190. Both were involved in a bankruptcy sale in late 1953. The Leslie Theater was rechristened the Carol Theater in 1954. The Joan Theatre later became a commercial building supply site.
