My brother and I swept the floors at the GEM in about 1953 in exchange for free movies. I vivid recall seeing “War of the Worlds” there. Mr. Clyde Ball ran the place. It had a popcorn machine where you put in a dime, and popcorn dropped down into a bag you held. The access to the projection booth was through a ladder. I am guessing that the theater sat about 100 to 200 people… not sure about the actual number. I am pretty sure the price of admission was about ten cents in 1953 or so.
