The NRHP Nomination Form for the Star/Carbon Theatre building is available here in the pdf format, and here in Google Documents quick view form.

The Star Theatre was built in 1923-24 by the Georgedes brothers, and was designed in the Classical Revival style by Salt Lake City architect J. A. Headlund. The theater was leased to a series of operators, In 1964, members of the Georgedes family sold the building to Duane and LaVerne Steele, who converted the theater into retail space.

Wikipedia has this modern photo showing the building’s remarkably well-preserved front.

This web page has a very small interior photo of the Star Theatre’s auditorium, published in the local high school’s yearbook in 1924 (it’s the ninth photo down in the left column.)
