The Star Theatre was created in 1908 from a building that was once a Masonic Temple dating back to the early 19th Century. After 1908 it was first used as a moving picture house and was the first theatre in the vicinity to show the Pathe production of the “Passion Play”. It was purchased in 1910 by Walter B. Davis and Julia M. Reid. There was a varied history of motion pictures, vaudeville, and stock productions afterwards.
In 1929, the theatre had been closed a while and was sold by the owner Mr. Davis, according to an article on the theatre that appeared in the Providence Journal in January of 1929. Additional information on this theatre would be appreciated.
