Gem Theatre (2016)

This small theater opened in 1928. It showed its first ‘talkie’ in 1931. Bob Wills (born in Turkey) was a frequent guest. The facade is a very plain yellow brick box that appears to have been constructed as part of a commercial block. The street level has been redone (or restored?), but the quaint marquee looks original.
