The building was owned by Dr. Donald Miller, located at 119 E Main Street, Gillett Wisconsin and was completely lost to fire on November 11, 1967. The new stucture at that address is now a vacant building that operated as Northwoods Title company. The Google is at the wrong address

Thank you for your note. Found it! Another side note: When the theater building was purchased by Dr Miller, he turned it into a Medical Building, and later, after he had left the state, was accused of arson when the building burned. The end of the Gem Theater historical building in a small town in Wisconsin.
