The Palace Theatre was a small, narrow theater from the silent era, which opened by 1911. By 1916 it had been renamed Alamo Theatre and this operated until 1928. It was acquired in the early-1930’s by Oscar Lam of Lam Amusements. In 1934, he hired the Atlanta architectural firm of Tucker & Howell to do a complete remodeling of the house. The newly transformed Gem Theatre reopened on November 19, 1934 and was featured in an article in the January 12, 1935, issue of Boxoffice Magazine. It was closed in the 1950’s.
