The Star Theater in Jamestown, Tennessee was built in 1933. The theater closed in the early 70’s due to the opening of the drive-in theater on the other side of town. The theater has been empty for the past 30 years.

Just recently, a group of locals called the Star Theater Restoration Committee have decided to work with the community to raise money and restore it as a community theater.

Film Daily Yearbooks; 1941 and 1943 editions give a seating capacity of 300. In the 1950 edition of F.D.Y. seating is given as 315.

Sorry I can’t help you any further. The Film Daily Yearbook entry’s give just the name of the theatre and the seating capacity as I stated in my 9th November posting. No further details are given. The only other info I have from these books is that the Star Theatre is the only theatre listed for Jamestown, TN.
