Well, never mind.
the Star Theatre was at 844 Broadway, pcitured at the top of the Wallack’s Theatre Wiki page.
Appears to have closed in 1901.
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.

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.
