The Star Theatre opened on November 24, 1915 having been built “at a cost of nearly $ 50,000…..” They called themselves in their ad, “The Photo Playhouse De-Luxe of New Hampshire”.

The Star Theatre was located on Pleasant Street in Concord, about ½ block up from Main Street. The Concord Theatre, where I worked from 1967 – 1994 when it closed, was at 18 ½ South Main Street in Concord.

Does anyone know when the Star was built? Also, I have the theater on Pleasant Street; others say it is on Main. Is there a way I can confirm the address?
