In 1938 Earl Carroll decided to open a theater and supper club at 6230 Sunset Boulevard.
He purchested an empty acre of ground.
In just 75 days he started and completed the construction of a building and opened a dazzling night club and theatre.
In those short weeks he created a building so advanced that no one has yet matched its glory or technical virtuosity.
A massive 80 foot wide stage was designed with a 60 foot double revolving turntable, an elevator under the stage and a revolving staircase.
The stage was also rigged with swings that could be lowered from the ceiling. The stage also had a rain making machine.
The stage machinery so complex it was not (or ever) duplicated in any other theater in America.
The club had six tiers and would accommodate 1,000 people.
Today, the building is the home of TVLand.
