The Shaw Theatre opened in 1915 as part of the Arthur Enterprises Inc. chain (Fanchon & Marco) and seated 1,140. Located in the Shaw neighborhood just four blocks from the Botanical Gardens. A single floor theatre with and plain front. Rather large lobby for a small neighborhood theatre.
Located right on the corner of Shaw Avenue and S. 39th Street in the middle of the neighborhood shopping center it was rather unique in that it was built up from the street level and you had to climb about five steps to get to the entrance level. The marquee was made to stretch around the corner so that one side was on S. 39th Street and the other on Shaw Avenue. The theatre gave way to television in 1957 and was converted to a drug store and then as a supermarket.
It was being restored in January to become a Special Events place named Wild Carrot which opened in March 2018.
