*The street numbering system in Eugene changed in 1913. Thus, some of the theaters have addresses that do not conform to contemporary locations, or have two different addresses, although they stayed in the same physical location.

The Little Gem opened in June 1907 in a small storefront space. Owner/manager Free Thomas moved from Denver to start the theater, and he spent $600 to renovate the space.
