A house called the Star Theatre was one of the five movie houses listed at Lincoln in the 1914-1915 American Motion Picture Directory. As the Directory doesn’t provide its address, I can’t be positive that it was the same theater that later became the Vogue.

This is a 1943 photo. It looks like the marquee was reworked in the ten years before the photo immediately above.
