Star Theatre

The Star Theatre was opened by former saloon-keeper Alexander Singelow on November 17, 1909. Local sources say the Star Theatre closed in the summer of 1927 and the building was converted into a drug store, although the house was still listed in the 1929 Film Daily Yearbook. Today the building is occupied by an antiques store.

Although the Film Daily Yearbooks list the Star with 550 seats, the building at 810 Hewitt (currently occupied by C & G’s Antiques) is far too small to have held a theater that size. I’m guessing it had 330 or 350, and somebody wrote at least one of their threes in a way that made it look like a five.

The lot the building is on also slopes up toward the rear, and as the roof is quite low at the back I am wondering if the Star might have been one of the rare breed called reverse theaters, with the screen at the entrance end of the auditorium. Of course the building might once have been taller and got cut down at some point.
