The theatre was on E Seneca St. There is no Scenic St in Ithaca.

The Ithaca Theatre Company was formed in April, 1920, through the consolidation of the Crescent Corporation, the Strand Theater Corporation, and Star Theater, Inc., under the auspices of former vaudevillian William Dillon. The Star Theatre was closed later that year in favor of the company’s other houses, the Strand and Crescent. The May 19, 1921 issue of The Cornell Alumni News reported that the Star Theater building had been sold to the Ithaca Conservatory of Music, and that the school intended to remodel it for use as a gymnasium. The building has since been demolished. Today its site is occupied by the drive-up teller windows and parking lot of a bank.
