More information is needed about the Star, which was one of William Fox’s first vaudeville-movie theatres in Manhattan but might have been an acquisition rather than one that he built himself. During the Star’s heyday, many top names performed on stage, but it eventually fell victim to competition from the Proctor’s 86th Street Theatre and Loew’s Orpheum, which were given exclusive first-run status for that area of the Upper East Side.
Reduced to playing late-run movies with several program changes per week, the Star finally closed in the early 1950s and was eventually demolished.
