The Gem Theater was located at 60 West 100 North and showed movies from about 1935 to 1955.[1]

A comparision of Sanborn Fire Insurance maps from 1930 and 1955 with current satellite photos indicates that the Gem Theatre expanded by annexing a building to the east.  Later it annexed harness and bicycle shops to the west and became the Cinema 3 Theatre.[2]

In 2002, while building the Providence Stadium 8, Westates Theatres said it was committed to downtown Logan and had plans to remodel the Cinema 3 within the next year.[3]

Plans for a remodel of the Cinema 3 was apparently replaced with a proposal to build a new four-screen theater and restaurant on the southwest corner of 100 North and 100 West. The city would have bought the Cinema 3 for $600,000 and then demolished the triplex to create a pedestrian connection between the “county block” and other downtown locations. The project became less viable after the loss of a planned convention center behind The Copper Mill Restaurant. Downtown also lacks the necessary parking and nightlife to support a movie theater.

Westates Theatres closed the Cinema 3 Theatre on 7 June 2007, in preparation for the opening of the University Stadium 6 Theatres at the Cache Valley Mall.
