I’ve found the Gem mentioned in issues of Boxoffice as early as 1936. A couple of times it’s called the New Gem. The earliest mention of the Lake is in 1950.

There was also an Alcazar Theatre in Brocton at one time, mentioned in the November 24, 1931, issue of Exhibitor’s Forum. I don’t know if this was an earlier name for the Gem/Lake or not.

Is there any address associated with this theater, beyond the generic Main Street? Brocton is small, but not that small. :)

Was the Lake in town? Interesting to learn of the Majestic and the Alcazar, too. Brocton is famous for their Main Street arch at the main intersection and traffic light in town. A campaign was started to restore this arch that is the only arch of its kind East of the Mississippi River.
