A “40 years ago” feature in the January 8, 1960, issue of the Mt. Vernon Register-News noted that the owners of the Plaza Theatre had purchased the Star Theatre and would operate both houses.

This theater was located in the eastern half of the Phoenix Block, a large 2-story brick structure constructed sometime before 1889. This had been the location of a local newspaper (the ‘Democrat’ and then the ‘Times’), and they maintained a printing operation on the second floor. The theater first appears on the June 1913 map. In 1908, the ground floor was a grocery. The depressing bank appears to be from the ‘70s.
