The Former Gem Theater in Central City is Being Converted Into a Brewery

The renovation will retain a movie house look

Wayward Owl Brewing announced last year they were taking over the old Gem Theater at 3940 Thalia St. in Central City, and now things are moving on the project. Canal Street Beat says the owner has filed plans for the renovation with the city.

Brewery owner Justin Boswell, previously head brewer for Redmond, Washington-based Black Raven Brewing Co., moved to New Orleans to open Wayward.

According to renderings of the project, it seems the renovation plans to retain the movie house look, complete with a Gem marquee.
