Address is 44 Cottage Street. Peruvian Link clothing store is in the building today, which is still standing. 1929 photo added credit Bar Harbor Historical Society. So it was still open then. It was closed prior to 1958, when the facade was removed (photo added) and building converted into a bowling alley by Ben Cough, who lived above it. It was later converted by Mort Sachsman into the Yankee Peddler clothing store. Pearl Wescott played the piano for silent films at the Star when Joseph Emory ran it. George C. McKay later owned both the Star and Criterion Theatres.
