Historic Fiske Theatre

The Post Moderne Art-Deco designed Fiske Theatre is one of two remaining theatres in Louisiana designed by the late B.W. Stevens. The theatre opened her doors on April 17, 1950.

The Fiske was constructed by the late Donald B. Fiske and was named "The Most Moderne and Well-Equipped Theatre" by the Motion picture exhibitors catalog in the 1950-51 edition.

In 1988, shortly before his death, Mr. Fiske donated the theatre to the West Carroll Chamber of Commerce where it operated until 2007 as a live performance venue with stars such as the legendary J.D. Sumner, Little Jimmy Dickens and Governor Jimmy Davis gracing her stage.

After the retirement of Harold Russell in 2007, the Chamber named Adam Holland as the Director of Theatre operations and shortly thereafter returned to her roots in motion picture exhibition. In 2011, Holland and his family began operating the theatre as Holland Entertainment LLC and became the first cinema in Northeast Louisiana to become 100% digital with their transition to Digital Cinema.

In 2012, with the strong support of community donations and volunteer labor, the Fiske underwent extensive renovations that included the replacement of seats, staining of the acoustic wall tiles and more. In 2014, the theatre was named to the National Register of Historic Places.
