Very similar to the Comet Theatre marquee sign in St. Louis, instead of a star it was a comet. Flashing neon on ther Comet trail.
What a great marquee! I wish I could have seen it; a star, flying through the air, knowing that there was a movie playing. Demolished? Of course! Time for another antidepressant!

The Star Theater should be shown as demolished.
As far as I’ve been able to tell, the Star was the only theater in Goldendale in the 1940s (Boxoffice never mentions any others), so it must have been the as-yet unnamed house K.A. Spears was building there in 1937, announced in Boxoffice of August 21 that year. The new theater was to seat 450 and was expected to open in October. The architect was D.W. (Day Walter) Hilborn.
