Star Theater in Reedsburg may re-open
REEDSBURG, WI — If a Community Development Block Grant for this city is approved, the re-opening of the Star Theater six-plex will be a top priority for the use of the funds. The theater was closed in 2008 by Kerasotes after sustaining flood damage.
The outcome of the grant will likely decide the immediate future of the theater, which Dougherty said was actually in very good physical shape, but was used for storage by previous owner Kerasotes Showplace Theatres.
“Without the money, the current prospect we’re working with can’t make it go,” Dougherty said, adding later, “Being the eternal optimist that I am, I think by the end of the summer the theater will be open.”
