Star-Vue TheatreThe Star-Vue Theatre, most popularly known and photographed for its vintage and rustic sign was constructed in 1950. During the 1950s the drive-in movie theatre business boomed and people in small and large communities flocked to them. It had one large screen that towered over the field that held 200 cars at maximum capacity. It showed single features on weekends every summer as did most others nearby.

“My boyfriend at the time and now husband of 31 years and I went to the Star-Vue Theatre for our first date in 1970. We saw Airplane and every time we went to the drive-in he would buy me a giant multicolored sucker. Those were some of the best days ever,” reminisced Donna Brewer.

It’s unsure exactly when it stopped being used as a drive-in but in its later years, the land was used for a rental equipment company until 2003. The old ticket booth, playground equipment, concession stand, projector room, sign, and the big screen framing still stand with barren bones.
