Lost Memory commented about Star Theatre on Mar 20, 2014 at 8:19 pm

The Star Theatre is last listed in the 1929 Film Daily Yearbook. No theatres are listed for Cripple Creek from 1930-34. The Vida Theatre starts to be listed in the 1935 Film Daily Yearbook with 250 seats. If the Star and Vida are the same theatre, the Star must have had the seating reduced before opening again as the Vida Theatre.

Currently, the Century Casino occupies the building with the “1991” on top plus the adjacent building on the left side and all of the buildings on the right to 2nd street. It looks like they expanded the casino into the adjacent buildings. Its possible that the theatre was demolished when the casino was built.

The Del Rey Theatre is listed in the 1955 Film Daily Yearbook with 552 seats. In the 1956 edition, the only theatre listed for Hughson is a Hughson Theatre with 552 seats. Was the Del Rey Theatre renamed around that time or did the FDY get the name wrong in 1956?
