Here is part of an Inquirer article in May 1984:

AN OLD MOVIE THEATER HAS NEW PURPOSE – CAMDEN’S STAR NOW A COMMUNITY CENTER

The old Star Theater in Camden returned to life yesterday, even though its days as a movie house are over. It now has a new, more important role in the community. The theater, at 1840 S. Broadway, dates back to the turn of the century. It was there for the birth of the motion-picture industry, starting with the silent films, and served as a movie house until the late 1950s, when the theater was taken over by the Sacred Heart Church, which used the theater as a special-events hall.

Here is a 1945 photo:
