Unfavorite 1 person favorited this theater

The Star Theatre was one of a handful of theatres on the stretch of W. Madison Street between N. Clark Street and N. Dearborn Street in early 20th century Chicago. It opened in 1914.

In 1921, the Jones, Linick, Schaefer circuit purchased the Star Theatre, for about $50,000. The chain also operated several other popular Loop theaters, including the Orpheum Theatre and Bijou Dream Theatre.

However, little more than a year after it was purchashed, the circuit sold the theatre to the Harding Company, which converted it into one of its chain of coffee shops.
