According to a reference in Motography Motion Picture Magazine, July – September 1916 the Star was purchased by Van Hyning who was planning to remodel it.

Although it gives a drastically different spelling for the owner’s name, the October 14, 1916 issue of Motography also mentions the remodeling project at the Star Theatre:

“H. Heneing is remodeling and adding 75 feet to the Star Theater at Independence. Mr. Heneing recently purchased the Star.”
The October 7 issue of The Moving Picture World also mentioned the project, using the same spelling of the owner’s name.
