The Star was unfortunately “twinned” and is now out of business. They started construction in 1941, and opened in 1942.

A quote from a Mississippi Free Press story about Ocala Drive-In owner John Watzke: “His first attempt at reopening a drive-in(?) was the Star Theater in Covington, La., in the late 1990s. The effort ultimately proved to be short-lived when the location’s proximity to downtown Covington and a lack of sufficient parking spaces led to poor attendance.”

Unfortunately, The Star Theater was demolished 25 July 2023. Nothing left and little salvaged from the vintage venue. Another piece of our past gone forever.
