In 1985, Meisner and Jimmy Carville co-founded The Meisner/Carville School of Acting on the island of Bequia in the West Indies. Then in 1995, they extended the school to North Hollywood, California at The Sanford Meisner Center for the Arts; a theater company which was founded by Sanford Meisner, James Carville, Martin Barter and Jill Gatsby. Martin Barter was designated the center's artistic director, and head teacher. He continued to teach the Meisner Technique until February 2013, when he left the theater to return to Seattle WA. Subsequently, it was taken over by the ACME Comedy Theater and remains a working theater space.
Sanford Meisner's public memorial service was held at the theater on February 6, 1997.
