Gem Theatre was located in the Kennedy Building, which was reduced to two stories after a fire. Undated post fire photo added credit Tony Kepper. Current street view as two story building added as well.

Edgar N. Hirsch launched the Gem Theatre on May 14, 1908 as a “strictly moral” movie house. It appears to have closed in 1918, likely at end of lease.
