Assessor information for the address 2710 S. San Pedro St. describes it as a parcel of just over 3000 sq. ft., occupied by a building of 2400 sq. ft. which was erected in 1910. It currently serves as a print shop. Unless the address has been shifted since 1923, this building must be the same one then occupied by the Star Theater.

I will try to go by there and take a look.

There’s also the matter of the New Star Theatre at 2698 W. Pico. I still haven’t found it here under any other name, so it might not be listed yet. I generated a property report for that address and the building on that site (SE corner of Pico and Fedora) was built in 1905, so it’s another probable survivor. It’s neighborhood included the Midway Theatre at 3138 Pico and the Victoria Theatre at 2570.

There’s a small building at this address, but without a closer look, it’s still a mystery.

The Star Theatre was still listed in the 1929 city directory, but was not listed in the 1936 directory or later. The Assessor’s office still lists the same 1910 building at 2710 S. San Pedro, so it hasn’t been demolished in the last couple of years.

The 1915 directory doesn’t list the Star, or any other theater, at this address, though, so unless the theater happened to be temporarily closed that year, or just got left out of the directory, the building was most likely built for another purpose in 1910 and then converted into a theater some time between 1915 and 1923.
