my great uncles theatre is now Digital and has been purchased by new owners and is in the process of being renovated and restored to her former glory like the way my great uncle intended after years of neglect and decay.

Hi just wanted to say that I have some new photos of the interior including the projection booth comming soon. I recently got to meet the owner before one of the showing. He let us look around the theatre and take some good photo also. For me it was my first time to go in the projection booth while it brought back memories to my dad when he was a kid since he use to spend alot of time their anyway. , I will be getting some new photos soon of the interior of the theatre.

The owner said I could stop by and take some photos since I am related to the former owner.

The tiny Gem is a part of a rare breed these days, a single screener in the downtown of a small city. It is hard to tell how long the Gem has been around, but I would estimate it to be the 40's or 50's. Good to see it still going in 2004.
