Starlite Ballroom At 9810 South Main St.

Highrise Tower

Recommended Posts

I was browsing The Rice Thresher magazine dated September 14, 1964 and noticed this business listing for Starlite Ballroom located at 9810 South Main St.

How awesome! I'd love to hear more about this place. Was this event/club called something previously?

C.L. And The Pictures

Also Bobby Blackmon And The Blue Orbits.

I've spoke to some old school Heights residence that say that there was a Starlite ballroom on North Shepard Dr. in the Merchants Park Center.

There definitely was a Starlite Ballroom near the Kroger on 11th Street and Shepherd.  My dad says the old Stardust Ballroom on Fulton moved to the Starlite.  I’m not sure how accurate that is.  My parents went dancing almost every weekend.  😀
