Business Member Profile: The Star Theatre (Est. 1921)

Supporting those, who support us, is the idea behind this series of posts.

Originally opened June 4, 1921, the Star Theatre in Dansville, NY is a single screen old fashion movie theatre.  The first shows were black and white silent movies until 1927 when “Talkies” were first shown.  It has a full service snack bar that serves the best popcorn in the area.  It has been owned and operated by the Schmidt family since 1994.  At the end of last year they reopened again after a week installation of a new digital  projector and sound system.

There are not that many old  theatre’s like this left and we are very fortunate to have this one as part of our Downtown Historic District on Main Street.  We hope you will see your next movie at the historic Star Theatre in Dansville.
