Earl Carroll opened his theater on December 26, 1938. It had the world's largest double-revolving stage and a dining capacity of 1000. The theater was sold following the 1948 deaths of Earl Carroll and Beryl Wallace in a plane crash. After a few changes in ownership over the decades, the building has housed the West Coast production of live-action original series produced for the Nickelodeon cable channel since 1997.
