J.T. ‘Ted’ Francis moved to Newberg in 1926 and reopened the Star & Baker theaters. In 1930, he added sound to the Baker, renamed it the Francis. The Star was closed at this time.

The Star Theatre was listed in the 1913-1914 edition of Julius Cahn’s guide with 280 seats. It was listed as showing movies only.

Newberg also had a house called the Gem Theatre that was destroyed by fire, along with some other buildings, in September, 1913.
