Unfavorite No one has favorited this theater yet

I found the Gem Theater on a history of Washington County, PA website. It claims the following: “Dr. H. J. Gamble built the Gamble Opera House and in 1905 opened the Gem Theater which showed motion pictures”.

I found an address of 247 West Main Street for the Gem Theatre, but it was published in 1908. If Monongahela’s numbering system might or might not have changed since then. If it hasn’t changed, then this theater has been demolished. It must have been on what is now part of the site of a modern building that has an H&R Block store in it. The store directly across the street from Block, Twice as Nice, is at 246 W. Main.

The same publication had an advertisement for the Ideal Theatre, featuring “Vaudeville, Motion Pictures, Illustrated Songs”, so the Ideal did show movies.
