I cannot believe that they are going to demolish the Star Theatre! I just viewed the construction of this and they do not make buildings like this any longer. That the city of La Puente thinks that this is redevelopment?! This is a historic building and I thought it fell under the California Historic Preservation Law of 50+ year old buildings. Will have to check into that if it is not too late.
I was born in Los Angeles and lived at the ‘Puente Junction’ and Valinda from 1955-1971. I saw my first movie at the Star theatre. It was the Pink Panther, and Fiddler on the Roof. A Hards Days Night!
I wonder if they ever considered building around it! What a concept!
I hope it is not too late to see it one last time. We are coming down for Easter Week. I currently live in Downtown HISTORIC San Luis Obispo where we cherish our buildings…it has increased our value of our community!
This building is one of the buildings that made Los Angeles what it is today. A place where everyone seems to want to live…..
