Located in Egham, Surrey. The Gem Electric Theatre was opened by Christmas 1910. It took its name from the fact that its first owner was, by trade, a diamond cutter. It was designed by architect J. Wornell of Ludgate Hill in the City of London. It had a very ornate façade, and seating in the auditorium was on a single floor.
The Gem Electric Theatre was closed around 1940. It lay vacant for a few years before conversion into a store. From 1955 until its demolition in 1982 it was a car showroom. A new building on the site contains an Italian restaurant & bar named Café Gondola.
In 2020 a new development close-by at the corner of Station Road North and High Street will contain three blocks of housing and retail use, including a four screen Everyman Cinema in what will be named Gem House, which is due to be completed in December 2021.
