1. Alcazar (Star) Theater Marker
Inscription. A combination moving picture theater and boarding house were the original tenants of this two-story masonry building, completed in 1908. Several directors managed the rather short-lived Alcazar, including Steve Roman, whose family long monopolized Red Lodge’s theater business. Roman closed the theater in 1913, and building owners Larkin and Fleming remodeled, opening as McIntyre’s Pool Hall. A bordello called the “Orpheus Rooms” replaced the upper-floor boarding house. In 1986, fire destroyed two buildings at 3 and 5 S. Broadway, which shared this same façade design. The now unique survivor, with its superior brick detailing and sandstone trim enhances the district’s historic turn-of-the-century character.
