This item mentioning the Globe appeared in the July 15, 1937, issue of The Film Daily:

“New Haven — Edwin S. Raffile, who managed the now-closed Globe Theater, a downtown first run, for 20 years, has been retained as superintendent of the Meadow Street film building by the new owners, Lomas & Nettleton.”
The Globe had closed sometime earlier that year, as it was mentioned in the January 2 issue of the same publication as having lately installed a new generator and arc lamps in the booth.

The diary of Frances Hubbard Flaherty, wife of documentary film maker Robert Flaherty, and later a screenwriter herself, mentions a visit to the Globe Theatre in New Haven on January 30, 1916.

The Globe is mentioned in the May 2, 1925, issue of The Moving Picture World:

“Edward Raffile, popular manager of the Globe Theatre in New Haven, has turned it into a first-run house. Ye scribe always recalls the Globe with pleasure as the house having an excellent organ and organist.”

At least the lobby building is still there, it seems, stripped of all its ornamentation. Compare the old photo at View link with the one at View link . It’s the same building as you can tell by the building next to it.
