The GEM Theatre initially began over a century ago, housing vaudeville performers from all over the country.
With the advent of motion pictures, The GEM was among the first American theatres to transition to a cinema house.
As the institution of live theatre became a rarer and rarer commodity, The GEM returned to its origins as a live theatre venue and began its commitment to preserving theatre culture.
Today, The GEM continues upholding its commitment to the arts by presenting original shows written, produced, and performed by local thespians, artists, and musicians.
