Information for this tour was contributed by Grant Smith.

The Star Theatre was built in 1924 for five brothers who immigrated from Greece. The Georgedes brothers were Pete, Angelo, Charlie, George, and Harry. Architect for the theater was J. A. Headland of Salt Lake City. The building features Corinthian columns and masks representing figures from Greek theater. [1]

The Star Theater showed movies from before 1930 until after 1935. [2]

The theater was acquired by Duane and LaVern Steele in 1964 and by Curtis Steele and Scott Sjostrom in 1985. [1]
