Gem Theatre

The Gem Theatre was built in 1912 as a silent movie house catering to the African American audiences.  Today the state of the art theatre showcases local and national Jazz groups.  This is located in the 18th and Vine Jazz district

What a beautiful old building. I'm so glad it has been so well maintained. Good thing that purple cow is keeping an eye on the place.

I am delighted to see that this cool theater has been preserved and repurposed. So many of them have met the wrecking balls.

Regina, your photo today is a gem in all ways. Love the blue cow peering around the corner at the front of the building. It's great when these old theaters can still be used.
