Very low quality listing. Theater is a little quonset style building on N Colorado St. Number is in the low 400s (even side). When I was there in 2010 it seemed to be a community theater, but I can’t tell if it’s still open. Looks to be in good shape, anyway.

Showmen’s Trade Review, Feb, 19, 1949: “Mr. and Mrs. Bernard Newman, owners of the Gem, Walsh, Colo., are vacationing in California.”

Newman still owned the Gem in 1964, when he bought the Apache Drive-In in Springfield CO, per a note in the Feb. 17, 1964 issue of Boxoffice. In his 2007 essay “Silver Screens Under Starry Skies,” historian Mark Wolfe clarified that Newman had formed a corporation, Baca Theaters, with Ike and Ruby Ross in 1963. Wolfe wrote that the corporation bought the Gem that year.
