The 1,783-seat Carlton Theatre opened November 11, 1926 with Richard Dix in “The Quarterback”. It featured both movies and vaudeville. It was a Walter Reade theatre. After a successful multi-decade run, the theatre closed in 1970.
Three years later, it was purchased by the Monmouth County Arts Council and renamed the Monmouth Arts Center. It was later renamed once again, as the Count Basie Theatre, after the famed Red Bank native and now features live dramatic and musical performances.
The Count Basie Theatre was added to the National Register of Historic Places on December 24, 2009.
In September 2017 ground was broken to construct a second auditorium adjacent to the theatre. The theatre has been renamed Count Basie Center for the Arts.
