The Kuhn Theater dates back to the 1910’s. As far as I can tell, this theater last operated as the Gem Theater and might have closed shortly after the current Kuhn Cinema on South Main Street opened around 1936.

This information comes from the Lebanon Express June 4, 1919:

Some Men Who Make Lebanon Grow

R. KUHN

“Mr. Kuhn is of course known primarily as the manager of the theatre which bears his name and all that pertains thereto or comes there in the shape of moving pictures or vaudeville, always the “best that can be secured” of either or both varieties of entertainment. Beyond that he is one of the livest and liveliest wires in the city and always ready to take off his coat and work for the public interest, for any charitable or humanitarian undertaking, or to further the prosperity of his friends. Still beyond and above this he an earnest believer in and worker for the true education of both the younger and older generation, whether that education takes the form of photoplays or any other agent for the enlightenment and broadening of the scope of mankind. Mr. Kuhn is a true exponent of tact and courtesy as well as a man who radiates good fellowship”.
