Located in the suburb of Werneth, 1 mile south west of Oldham town centre. The Gem Cinema was opened in 1920. It later had a Western Electric(WE) sound system and the proscenium was 20ft wide. The Gem Cinema was closed in the early-1960’s.
It became a cabaret club known as the Consul Club, which attracted artists such as Englelbert Humperdinck and Frank Ifield. Initially it was a success, but business dropped off after a few months.
In 2006 it was occupied by a soft furnishing company but had been demolished by 2009 and houses were being built on the site.
