Architects: George Edward Wilson
Previous Names: Star Theatre
Originally opened as the Star Theatre in 1909. It was remodelled in 1915 to the plans of local architect George Edward Wilson. It is listed as operating as the Pontiac Theatre in 1941 by the Schine Circuit. It had double and triple feature cowboy movies in the early-1950’s. I remember one afternoon with a double feature with Lash LaRue with an on stage visit with Lash who gave all the children tiny whips as souvenirs. It used to cost 15 cents to spend an entire Saturday with two or three movies, a special visitor and several cartoons.
The Pontiac Theatre was closed in the 1950’s and was converted into a bowling alley. It was demolished in June 1973.
