Here is a vintage photo of the Powers Theatre. The caption says that it “… started as the Gem Opera House in the 1920s….” but an item in [em]The Moving Picture World[em] of July 15, 1916, indicates that the house was built to show movies: “CARIBOU, ME.â€"Astte & Page has the contract to erect a two-story moving picture theatre, 45 by 96 feet, for P. J. Powers, to cost $10,000.”

The Powers Theatre building appears to be for sale. It currently houses a barber, tattoo shop, and food bank, among other tenants.

There are recent photographs of the building here: http://mainehomes.com/node/13177
