The Star Theater was built in 1878. It was called Partridge Hall. Partridge Hall was used mostly as a live performance hall, for dances and dinners. In 1920 it was renamed the Star Theater and began showing movies. It remained a movie theater for approximately twenty years. After it closed as a movie theater, it was used for various purposes such as a chick hatchery and later for storage.

In 1980, it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places as building #80000154. After a restoration, the Star Theater has come full circle. It is now the Star Theater at Partridge Hall which is a restaurant with live entertainment.

Yes, 200 S. State Street should be the address. That is the address given on the Related Website link above. I’m sure that I gave the 200 S. State Street address when I added this theater.

That is probably what happened Chuck. The National Register of Historic Places has given the wrong address or has not included an address for a few theaters. Sometimes the builder or architects name is also spelled wrong. It appears that no source is 100% accurate.
