This web page about the Clinton Historic Commercial District says that the “…Gem Theater occupied the building at 109 N. Wall Street from the 1930s until the early 1950s.”

Street View shows that the narrow, two-story gray building was occupied by a Spanish language church for a while, but the Internet indicates that the church has moved on to new quarters elsewhere. The building might currently be vacant, but I haven’t found any real estate listings for it.

A Gem Theatre at Clinton, North Carolina, was mentioned in the March 10, 1923 issue of The Moving Picture World, but since no address was given I don’t know if it was the Gem that was at 109 N. Wall Street from the 1930s to the 1950s or not.
