Previous Names: La Bonita Theatre, Star Theatre
Located in the Richmond district of the city. The former La Bonita Theatre has been close to closing many times since its birth in 1912. By 1941 it was operating as the 350-seat Star Theatre. It was renamed 4-Star Theatre on February 3, 1946 and had 330-seats. Although any of its architectural character was long clapboarded over, the theatre has retained a simple Moderne style marquee and vertical sign. Chinese characters have also been painted on the façade.
The theatre was the site of an 11-month run of “La Cage aux Folles” in 1979. It was twinned by adding a 49-seat theatre and showing mostly arthouse and foreign films, the 4-Star Theatre continued to struggle, but it was a survivor. It was closed and sold in September 2021. It reopened on December 8, 2022 with one screen with 140-seats. The former second screen has been converted into an art gallery.
