Star Theater

Housed in a building which one source says dates back to 1915, references to the Star Theater appear in several sources, particularly in 1949 and again in a 1953 advertisement.

The Dragon House Chinese Restaurant now occupies the space.

Uploaded images of a joint flyer with the Skyline Drive-In from 1953, a page from the 1949 Tiger Roar (the yearbook of the Clay County Community High School) containing a booster ad from the Star and the current street view showing the Dragon House Chinese Restaurant.

According to a bit of oral history it was reported that the Star generally programmed Westerns. The flyer I uploaded confirms that. The matron would confiscate any toy guns brought in by the boys until the end of a screening.
