The Star was one of the most famous burlesque theatres in Brooklyn or anywhere, but did it have any cinematic history? A vintage photo can be seen here: brooklynpix

The Star Theatre was screening movies in 1908. In the early-1940’s, movies were part of the burlesque program, and it also screened Italian movies in the mid-1940’s.
