Paul T. Hellmann’s Historical Gazetteer of the United States says that the Star Theatre at Mercersburg was built in 1904. I’ve been unable to find any mention of Mercersburg in early trade publications, or in any editions of Julius Cahn’s guide.

The Historic League of American Theatres says that the Star was built in 1921. The building certainly has the style of the early 1910s, though.

Definitely looks older than 1921.

The PA Opry’s website states that the Star Theater opened as an opera house in 1911.

Closed? is no longer working as well as its facebook page not being updated since late 2016.
