My boyfriend and I stumbled across your page while on our quest for old theaters. We visited the Gaylord Theater and made it a mission to try and find which building was the Old Star Theater. We were pretty confident we had located the building based on the exterior structures. We went in and talked to the owner of the current building but she wasn’t aware of it ever being a theater and only of it at one point being an insurance agency. The building still has the original hardwood floors, as well as the original wall. After leaving there we began our internet search and were able to find an old postcard on the county historical site advertising a running of the movie “The Mark of Zorro”. Based on the info from that I knew the theater was open for sure in 1924. Then was able to google Gaylord businesses in the 1920’s and stumbled across the information I needed to know it was open in the 20’s and 30’s, and with photos from the historical society we can conclude it was closed by the 40’s. The address of where the theater once was is 240 W Main Street, Gaylord. We are going to email all the photos we have to you. Thanks for such a great site. We’ve been visiting old theaters from Calumet down the UP and wish we would have discovered this site before then. We have some other photos and information on other theaters if you are interested in them.

I'm not sure if this is the same as the Star Theater, but there is a Gaylord Theater that first opened July 15, 1937, according to the Otsego County Herald, same date.
