At the center of a blackhole is the singularity: a point where the star and everything that has fallen into the star is squelched into near infinite density, zero volume, and the curvature of space-time becomes infinite.

Your idea of everything in the universe being devoured by black holes is known as the "big crunch" theory, in which the entire universe collapses into one singularity. Perhaps when this happens, a new big bang occurs, and the universe begins again. This exciting idea is called the "oscillating universe" theory in which the future is basically the past, and the past is basically the future.
