Star Theatre

Located in the Pineville suburb of Alexandria. The Hauber Annex Theatre was built right next to the already operating Hauber Theatre. It had seating provided for 440 in the orchestra level and 120 seats in the balcony.

Construction began in April 1941, and from June 20, 1941 the theatre opened, operating in the evenings only as an outdoor theatre. It was eventually roofed over and was fully completed to open on December 5, 1941. It was designed by and operated by O.C. Hauber. Both the Hauber Theatre and Hauber Annex Theatre were still operating in 1950.

On July 20, 1950 the Hauber Annex Theatre was renamed Star Theatre.
