When planning the first phase of our upgrades, adding handicap accessible restroom facilities on the main floor was at the top of our list. We are thrilled to announce that the Gem Theatre bathroom addition is complete and open for use!
For the last few years we have landed in the top five for the annual KidsOutandAbout.com Top 20 Places to Take Kids in and Around Charlotte survey. This year is extra exciting though! You voted us as the #1 place to take the kids!
May 27, 2021: We are open! We are thrilled to welcome you back to the Gem Theatre after closing last February for a few building upgrades. Thank you for being patient with us as we underwent some needed improvements to our facility. We have replaced our HVAC system, restored our iconic marquee, and are wrapping up a lower level bathroom installation. We are reopening at 100% capacity per the lifted state capacity restrictions and encourage unvaccinated persons to continue to wear a mask. We look forward to seeing everyone here at the Gem again soon!
Gem Theatre owner Steve Morris has stepped up BIG and is committing to raise $10,000 for breast cancer research. He has been touched by both cancer survivors but also people who have lost their battle with this disease. Would love to have our loyal customers make a donation of any kind to support his effort.
About Real Men Wear Pink
Real Men Wear Pink was born out of a desire for men to have a unique way to help in the fight against breast cancer. Real Men Wear Pink gives communities the opportunity to nominate local male leaders to spearhead fundraising efforts for the American Cancer Society's breast cancer initiatives.
These initiatives include promoting early detection and prevention, funding groundbreaking research, and giving patients support wherever and whenever they need it. Because of the passion of supporters like you, Real Men Wear Pink is helping to save more lives from breast cancer.
