The Sanilac Theatre was built inside the walls of Sandusky’s former auditorium, though it was otherwise a new building. The project was designed by architects Bennett & Straight, according to Boxoffice of November 13, 1937.

The former Star Theatre was the town’s first movie venue and was in a different location in downtown. The Sanilac Theatre was housed in a converted retail location opened by the Thumb Circuit on 1937 on a 20-year lease. Under a new 30-year lease, Stan Fetting and his wife operated from 1957 to 1987 closing there after the theatre’s 50-year run. Steve Kurinsky of the nearby Hi-Way Drive-In Theatre, Sanilac County’s only ozoner at the time, took on the venue. Never reopened, the Sanilac was undergoing a renovation to a twin-screen venue when fire destroyed the building on April 5, 2000.
