The Star Theatre opened in April 1909. A small downtown theatre with seating given at 420.

The Star Theatre was briefly renamed Era Theatre in 1947, screening adult movies. It was closed in September 1937 and converted into retail use. It has been demolished and there is now a parking garage where the theatre once stood.

The Ross Bros. Circuit opened the Star Theatre in April of 1909. The theatre had a long run under J.H. Pabst converting to sound pictures. The Star became an adult cinema in 1946 and in 1947 became a subrun double-feature house called the Era Theatre closing just weeks into its rebranding. In September of 1947, it was gutted and retrofitted for retail purposes.
