It became The Star Theatre in the mid-1930s. As the Star Theatre it became a Spanish-language theater showing mostly Mexican movies. This was during the Golden Age of Mexican cinema; famous movies by popular Mexican actors and actresses like Cantinflas, Tin Tan, Pedro Infante and Maria Victoria showcased at the Star.</p>\n<p>\n\tAt the time, especially during the 1930s and 40s, Market St. and 7th St. were the heart of the Latino community in Oakland and the Star Theatre was a focal point for the Mexican Latino community. The Theatre not only showed movies, it also had live shows with Mexican actors and music shows. The Star also had Raffle Nights and free prize giveaway nights, both popular with local Latina women. One of the managers of the Star Theatre was a man named Julio De Unamuno .</p>\n<p>\n\tThe Star Theatre closed in 1964 and was soon torn down during the Urban Renewal era and destruction of West Oakland that displaced many Latino and African American families from West Oakland. The Acorn high-rise housing project now stands where the Star Theatre was once located.</p>\n<p>\n\t<span class=\"image_frame image_frame_border\"><img src=\"_files/star%20theater%202.jpg\" style=\"width: 250px; height: 300px;\"><span style=\"width: 250px;\" class=\"image_caption\">Star Theater Poster</span></span><span class=\"image_frame image_frame_border\"><img src=\"_files/00727_01_1952-9-0082%20-%20star%20theatre.jpg\" style=\"width: 376px; height: 300px;\"><span style=\"width: 376px;\" class=\"image_caption\">1952 Sanborn excerpt</span></span></p>\n", "region": "https://ja.localwiki.org/api/v4/regions/340/", "history_comment": null, "history_date": "2021-10-07T18:43:51.796", "history_type": 1, "history_user": "https://ja.localwiki.org/api/v4/users/3242/", "history_user_ip": "2600:1702:2770:bc20:283b:f628:9735:19aa" }
