The Star is open again and showing first-run mainstream movies. In the summer of 2004 it has screened such films as Collateral, I Robot, Shrek II, and Hero.
Prior to its recent cinema revival, it was a theatre for live performances of Mexican music and folk dance.
I have been a resident of La Puente for over 25 years and until now only known the Star as a XXX cinema house. Online research on the construction of the “Puente Theatre” (as the Star was originally named) and architect S. Charles Lee is available at http://digital.library.ucla.edu/sclee/
