I ganked an 1893 photo off the web, which has a Star Theatre in the background identified as being at 14th & Broadway.
I was only able to find a 1901 World Almanac record of a Star Theatre at Broadway & 13th Street with a seating capacity of 2000, under Opera Houses & Theatres.
If anyone knows if the Star was converted to film, and where it may have been I will post the photo accordingly.
I thought it was possibly a prior name of the Theatre Unique. But the seating capacity was far larger for the Star.
One correction/addition.This is a screen grab from the “Finding Vivian Maier” film.
November 14th 1944 photo added.

Thank you CT Admin’s for updating the Woods page.
Here is further confirmation that 1918 is the correct year for the Woods opening.
Just found a few other book sources that confirm March 11, 1918 was the opening date of the Woods Theatre.
Added an opening photo to the Photos Section.
Although the photo is dated 1917, all sources including Variety linked below say “Friendly Enemies” opened the Woods Theatre March 11, 1918.

So the opening date should be changed as well as the spelling of “Theater” to “Theatre” in the Overview and page top.
The building may have been constructed in 1917 but did not open until 1918.

They listed the address as 2556 N. Milwaukee Ave., not 2542.
Anyone have an official address source?

Theater spelling should be changed to “Theatre” at the page top. It appears that way in the arch stonework and on the marquee.

For some reason the highlighted “Here” link erases the cursor arrow, so it can’t be clicked on.Even when Logged In to CT.The highlighted links in the other comments still work.
Ran across this in the Ryerson Collection. 4 pages. You need to enlarge them to read them. Copy & paste to view.
