The Ortte’s Theatre opened in the late 1930’s or early 1940’s. It was operated by Ed Ortte who was a co-owner of two theatres, the Gulf Theatre and the Legion Theatre in Gulfport, Mississippi. The theatre was located at 300 South Beach Boulevard on the beachfront accross from the American Legion Hall. It was a red brick building.
In about 1951, its name was changed to the Star Theatre. The Star was always operated as an independant theatre and its last owner fought to try and keep his theatre open. He finally closed the Star and it was converted to the Big E Grocery. It retained the marquee and the box office and the two entrance doors on each side of it until Hurricane Katrina demolished the building in 2005. The site is now a empty lot.
