I have reset the site for Star Theater on Fountain Square between two green trees and next to Fifth/Third Bank Tower. The map view above shows Star’s site incorectly as further down East Fifth Street. Stars site was almost at E.Fifth Street and Walnut St.

This cinema was also called ,“The Gayety ”,in its earlier days making it harder to trace as 3 Gayety Theaters in Cincinnati florished over the decades.Another Gayety was located on Walnut St near 6th.,plus the scandalous Empress/Gayety burlesque house on Vine Street where now the Main Library resides. None of these three simular named venues existed at the same date, but newspapers then didn’t always use street designations when writing about them,hence the mindboggling maze when searching for info.
