The GEM Theatre is a 461 seat historically restored theatre. The theatre’s acoustics and seating arrangement are incredible...literally, there isn’t a bad seat in the house. Artists and musicians alike have praised the GEM on the quality of sound and the atmosphere of the GEM. We are truly blessed to have such a facility here in Calhoun.


We strive to bring a wide diversity of shows featuring both local and national acts into the theatre each year.  It is our hope to offer something for everyone. We have recently begun a country, comedy and Christian/Gospel series of programming.
