Not much is known about the Star theatre other than a few published advertisements in the Times-Herald in the fall of 1908. This particular newspaper was only published once a week, and in the weeks from September 26th to October 17th 4 out of the 5 published papers had advertisements and or information on the theatre. On the October 17th issue of the paper, there is a short news piece that says the theatre will no longer be showing moving pictures, which is when this theatre is presumed to be closed. These short lived theaters were a common occurrence at the time, as moving pictures were seen by many as a good investment, and way to make money, however due to the number of and the content of the advertisements, it seems that this particular theatre only lasted a few weeks.
