The Gem has announced several upcoming opportunities for students to get involved in the project!
Saturday, March 7, 2015 at 9 a.m.: Archeological documentation and dismantling of the 1938 projection room. This room is entirely as it was left when the theatre closed in 1968 including film in canisters and carbon arc lighting supplies left on the shelves. All materials will stored for a future display.
Saturday, March 14, 2015 at 9 a.m.: Removal of the tongue/groove beadboard ceiling in Star Saloon. The 1901 square nails will be removed and the material will be sorted to be milled into flooring and wainscot for reinstallation.
If you are interested in participating, you should contact the Gem Board at http://gemtheatre.org/index.php/contact-us. Of course, if you just want to show up on those days, you won't be turned away!
