I spoke to an old gentleman in Pascoag today at the hardware store and he said that the Star was located at or very near the spot where the current Subway sandwich shop is located at 130 Main Street.

If this is the theatre I am thinking of, I saw A Hard Days Night here multiple times. My brother dated a girl whose parents owned the theatre and I would get parked there while he was on a date.

If I remember correctly, the family name was Deroy or Deny.

This theatre was part of the September 1923 6th Paramount Week. In this advertisement from the (Providence) Evening Tribune, September 1, 1923, we see a fascinating list of Rhode Island area theatres, many long-gone and long-forgoten, or even unheard of, as well as what they were showing during that week. The Star was showing Java Head with Leatrice Joy. CLICK HERE and move image to see all theatres.

There are references in lists from around 1915 to a theatre in Pascoag called the Empire. Could that have been the Star or the Music Hall, or was it another location?

The Empire Theatre, Main Street, Pascoag was listed in the 1914-1915 edition of American Motion Picture Directory. It was the only movie theatre listed in that town.

In the 1926 edition of Film Daily Yearbook the 400-seat Star Theatre was the only theatre listed for Pascoag.
