Earl Carroll Theatre


The Earl Carroll Theatre was open in 1938, on Sunset Boulevard by New York Impresario Earl Carroll. This dazzling night club and theatre who’s facade held two of Hollywood’s most renowned landmarks: the 20 foot high neon painting of Beryl Wallace, one of Carroll’s “most beautiful girls in the world” and the “Wall of Fame” presenting in cement the personal inscriptions to Earl Carroll of more than 150 of Hollywood’s most glamorous stars.

The 60-foot wide double revolving turntable on the 80-foot main stage, the three swings which lowered from the auditorium ceiling, the elevator, revolving staircase and rain machine were part of a stage machinery complex not duplicated in any other theatre in America.
