This theatre opened as the Gem Theatre in 1923. By 1950 it had been renamed the Roxy Theatre. The theatre seated 258 and was still operaating in the mid-1970’s. There was a fire that left just the shell and front of the building after it closed.

A Gem Theatre was in operation at Trenton, Nebraska, at least as early as 1923. Manager E. J. Walters had three capsule movie reviews published in Exhibitors Herald in September that year.
