Gem Theatre
Salt Lake City, Utah

The Liberty Theatre, later known as the Gem, opened 1 February 1911 at a cost of $20,000.  The “photo-playhouse” was to be “one of the most modern motion picture houses in the west,” including “many new features which have not before been incorporated in plans for a motion picture house.”  Private loges allowed patrons to enjoy “the exclusiveness and comforts of the opera box.”
