The Star Theatre launched April 19, 1909 in a new-build facility by O.H. Mevis on the East Side of the Broken Bow square. The fifth operator of the Star Theatre closed it on July 3, 1918 and moved the equipment to Seneca ending the theater’s run for just over a year. The theatre reopened under new operator W.H. Jones on July 29, 1919. Jones had previously operated the theater in Merna.

Horace F. Kennedy of the Lyric took over the theatre one year later ostensibly to remove a competitor. It was converted for use as a dry cleaner which opened in 1922. Myers Dry Cleaners closed there in 1941 with the building then demolished for the new-build and short-lived Farris-Black Store.
