Calhoun’s GEM Theatre…where someone viewed Gone With The Wind for the very first time…the location a resident watched the news and received World War II updates…the place a child sat every Saturday captivated by cartoons…where a couple had their first date…and where everyone in Gordon County came for entertainment.
The GEM Theatre was established in downtown Calhoun in 1927 and expanded to its current size in 1939. The theatre was Calhoun’s only movie and performing arts venue until it closed in the late ‘70’s.
The GEM building (which had been vacant for the majority of the past 20 years) was purchased in 2001 thanks to the vision of Raymond and Pearl King and their children Ted and Ginger, who wished to see the theatre restored to its previous glory.
