Mike Gore (July 6, 1878 – August 16, 1953)[1] was a movie theater owner who received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for his work in Motion pictures.[2] His star is located in the sidewalk in front of 6315 Hollywood Blvd.

Gore came to the United States from Russia as a child, settling first in Chicago where he later was in the cigar-manufacturing business. He came to Los Angeles in 1906, when the movie industry was in its early days. He was a co-founder of the West Coast Theatres chain of first-run movie theaters in 1920.[3]
