The Star Theatre

Built in 1937, the Star Theatre entertained many a folk for over its 60 years. It was a marvel of the time, boasting modern, luxurious features such as a carpeted lounge with velvet velour chairs, sophisticated Tasmanian Blackwood trims, and coloured neon lighting.

Do you have any memories of the Star? We’d love to hear them!
