Unfavorite No one has favorited this theater yet

Located on the west side of the city plaza, the Gem Theatre opened prior to 1926. Around 1938 it was renamed Loma Theatre (the first of two Loma Theatre’s to operate in Socorro). It was destroyed by fire in December 1956.

In 1960 a second Loma Theatre was opened a few blocks away (which has its own page on Cinema Treasures).

I’ve seen sources saying that the Loma Theatre was on the est side of the Plaza, the south side of the Plaza, and the west side of the Plaza. I think west side must be correct, though. A 1956 newspaper report about the fire that destroyed the theater and three other buildings said that it was on the same block as the Park Hotel, and other sources indicate that the Park Hotel was on the location now occupied by the Post Office, which is at the west end of the Plaza.
