I remember seeing this building a long time ago; I was working on a construction project up at Broad and Augusta Streets, and there was a restaurant adjacent to it that I ate lunch at many times. As I remember, in the ‘70s the sign on the marquee was the Gem Theater. I also believe it was further south on Broad, and is now the empty lot between the second and third (the closed restaurant, maybe) buildings south of Kentucky Street.
