Unfavorite No one has favorited this theater yet

The December 3, 1968 edition of the Pocatello Idaho State Journal said that the Star Theatre had been destroyed by fire on December 1. Leon and Richard Morris, owners of the Starlite and Sunset drive-ins in Chubbuck, were in the process of selling the theater to Hal Holden but unfortunately the theater building was a total loss with the walls caving in.

It was closed for business at the time but a photograph, taken before the marquee fell, showed that the current movie was “Planet of the Apes". The 1951 Film Daily Yearbook listed seating as 380. The Aberdeen Times noted at the time of the fire that the building, built about 50 years ago, was remodeled in 1948.
