The Daughter of the Stars Theater
Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains, in the historic town of Stanley, VA is the iconic Daughter of the Stars Theater. Built in 1926, the theater was originally a movie cinema showing old Westerns and War films. There is a rich history around the theater and the magnificent surrounding countryside that paints the picture of American culture and history.
Our primary focus is to explore and bring to a wider audience the rich, diverse, history, music, art, and cultures of the Shenandoah Valley in an Entertaining and respectful way.
We began work of restoring the theater in the spring of 2021 and plan to bring live entertainment that represents the culture of the Shenandoah Valley to the stage and directly to your living room through our YouTube channel.
