In 1923, Torrance Duvall purchased the Iris apartment building and built a small adjacent theatre named the Gem Theatre.
In 1930, Duvall demolished the Gem Theatre and replaced it with the much larger New Iris Theatre.
In 1954, Duvall sold the Iris Apartments and the New Iris Theatre to the Sid Horman Construction Company. Horman subsequently sold the buildings to Arthur Proctor, and the name of the theatre was changed to the Vista Theatre on November 22, 1967.
Since then, ownership has changed several times and the New Iris Theatre became known as the Desert Star Playhouse. It now has two screens and is named Desert Star Theatres.
