Earl Carroll Theatre was the name of two important theaters owned by Broadway impresario and showman Earl Carroll. One was located in the Broadway Theater District in New York City and the other on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood, California. The Sunset Boulevard Theater opened on December 26, 1938. The glamorous supper club-theater offered shows on a massive stage with a 60-foot wide double revolving turntable and staircase and swings that could be lowered from the ceiling. The theater was sold following the 1948 deaths of Earl Carroll and Beryl Wallace in the crash of United Airlines Flight 624. It continued to operate but by the early 1950s it was falling on hard times. In 1953, Las Vegas showman Frank Sennes reopened the theater as a nightclub under the name "Moulin Rouge".
