This long-demolished theater on Hampshire Street in Quincy opened around 1910 as the Colonnade Theater, and operated until 1954 before closing. It was later known as the Star Theater and finally the Glenn Theater. A parking lot is at the address today.

And not long after its opening as the Colonade, it was purchased in 1911 by Messrs. Nelson and Schwindler and renamed the Star.
