Located in a two-story 1890 brick building, the Star Theatre operated from 1908 to 1914, featuring both vaudeville and silent films. A classic nickelodeon, it attracted a young and rowdy audience, causing the city to try to shut it down.
Since 1914, the building has had many occupants, including a dry goods store between 1925 and 1927 and a Salvation Army for many years afterward. Today the building is home to a Brazilian restaurant and an auto glass repair shop.
