The Pacific Coast Architecture Database has a page for this theater. PCAD gives a slightly different history, saying that the house opened as the Madison Street Theatre in 1902, was the Alcazar in 1904 and 1905, and then John Considine operated the house as the Star Theatre #2 from 1905 to 1911.

At this point, PCAD’s page goes a bit off the rails, saying that the house later operated as the Owl, the State, and the Rivoli, but their own page for the Tivoli Theatre (later the State and the Rivoli) says that the latter house was a new build on the site of the Star Theatre. As the Tivoli didn’t open until November, 1913, it’s possible that the Star (or Owl, as it might have been called by then) operated into the early part of that year. In any case, 1913 is probably the year the Star was demolished.
