The historic Star Theatre in Hannibal was established in 1906. According to their website:
The Star provided vaudeville style entertainment, including such famous stars as Roy Rogers and Trigger, Amelia Erhart and others, until a motion picture camera was installed. A full orchestra accompanied the silent films.The first epic film and the first talking movie were all shown first at the Star Theatre.
The theater had been abandoned for years, until restoration efforts began in 2000. After five years, the Star reopened and is now a popular venue for meetings and events.
