Gem Theatre

The Rex Theatre opened on November 2, 1914 with Lilian Worth in “The Pearl of Punjab”. It had 150 seats and the Logan Public Library notes the original building dated back to 1864. It was renamed the Iris Theatre, with 250 seats, on September 23, 1922. On May 2, 1928 it was refurbished and renamed Gem Theatre. It was closed on May 28, 1970 with David Hemmings in “The Best House in London”.

On its demolition in June 1970, the Herald Journal reported it had been in the Currell family since 1924. Harold Currell was to be a partner and manager in the new theatre to be constructed on the site by the Cache Amusement Corp.

A new cinema opened on the site November 18, 1970.
