The Star Theatre was opened by 1909. It was still open in 1957, but that could have been its final year.

A theater operated at 1331 Broad Street from 1914 to 1949, according to the NRHP registration form for the Newcastle Commercial Historic District (1329 is now the address for the entrance to the building’s upstairs. The building was erected as an annex to the larger Jennings Building to the east, and the upstairs space was originally probably accessed through that building.)

This house was listed as the Star Theater, 1329 Broad Street, in the 1909 city directory.

I think the NRHP listing is wrong. They took the dates on the first map the theater appears on, and the last one, and assumed they had anything to do with opening or closing. It may have remained in operation into the ‘50s.
