Listed as the Yellowstone in 1926, by 1939 it was the Jefferson Theatre. Seated 382 and was still the Jefferson in 1960. No date as to when it became the Star Theatre. The Star had made the conversion to digital projection and is showing first run attractions.

Former owners Melvin and Alice Slater wrote a lengthy letter published in the May 12, 1958 issue of Boxoffice. “We (my husband and I) bought this theatre and building, putting our life’s savings plus everything we made in show business back into it in remodeling and buying the best of new modern theatre equipment, determined to build a fine business from a rundown and outmoded one. After five years of strident effort and hard work, we did. Then TV hit our community. That was a year and a half ago. Need I say more? … we closed our doors April 30.”
