Star Theatres is a movie theatre chain owned and operated by AMC Theatres. Based solely in Michigan, Star is known for having extravagant interior designs, many screens, and in some cases, stadium-style seating. The chain made the Summer 1990 Entertainment Weekly Honor Roll for movie theaters with the late Detroit Free Press critic Kathy Huffhines declaring, "IT'S FRIENDLY, kicky, and cute and looks like a bright red-and-white jukebox from the outside."[1]

The chain came to prominence in the late 1980s and early 1990s as more audiences chose to view films at a megaplex. Over time, some locations have shut down or moved, while others have thrived. The Southfield, Michigan and Auburn Hills, Michigan locations are considered the flagships of the chain and remain very popular with local movie-goers. The slogan is "Love*Laugh*Live" and "Larger than Life".
