Make Kannapolis Your Next “PokeStop” with PokemonGO

Gem Theatre PokeStopPokemonGO is taking downtown Kannapolis by storm, and you can get in on the action! Come visit the Gem Theatre and explore Kannapolis as you hunt for your next rare pokemon.

PokemonGO is the latest interactive app for both Android and iPhone that allows you to catch, train, and battle creatures called Pokemon in a real-world set up alongside other “trainers” to be the very best. From young trainers to advanced masters, PokemonGO is designed for everyone searching for adventure in their own backyard.

Visit historic locations in downtown like the Gem Theatre, the Dale Earnhardt Tribute Plaza, the North Carolina Musical Hall of Fame and so much more to collect free in-game items from PokeStops.

You can also visit the Veterans Memorial Statue and other spots to test your skills and battle in Pokemon Gyms to take claim for your team. There are eleven PokeStops and three Pokemon Gyms in downtown Kannapolis, so come visit and remember, “Gotta Catch ‘em All!” Be sure to tag us using #GemNC on social media – we’d love to see your photos!

Also, remember to take a break from your Pokemon adventures by catching a movie at the Gem Theatre! You can also always grab a cold drink or popcorn from our concession stand!
