The Star Theatre opened as the Orpheum Theatre and was listed as open in the mid-1920’s. It became the Strand Theatre in 1933 and then in 1934 the Star Theatre. The Star was open into at least the late-1950’s. Should have aka’s of Orpheum and Strand.

The 1917 Sanborn shows a theater operating at 201 S Main, which is either the Orpheum or perhaps a predecessor. The building at this point was a 2-story brick commercial block of which the theater occupied the northern half. Current structure is a dumpy ‘70s or '80s thing which replaced 4 buildings on Main.
