Archives of the Modesto Evening News show that the New Star Theatre opened on July 5, 1915, under the management of a Mr. Martin. Information is scarce but the Evening News praised it for its ventilation system. A local Modesto website, historicmodesto.com, says that the Star Theatre was previously located across the street at 927 10th Avenue. This previous Star Theatre can be traced back to at least 1896 in the Modesto Evening News.

The New Star Theatre closed sometime in 1921. On February 11, 1922, it was announced that the lease on the New Star Theatre had been transferred and the remodeling of the former theater into three stores would begin. In 2009 the building was still being used for commercial purposes.
