Built as a church and converted into a cigar factory. The Glenwood Theater was an early movie house on Clinton Street in Binghamton that was operational by 1914 to 1916. It received a permit to show movies on Sundays in 1916, but around the same time was denied an ordinance to operate by city fathers who deemed the building unsafe. After that, there are no further mentions of the theater in the Binghamton Press. John J. Boyle was the proprietor.

It is not known if the building currently at 284 Clinton Street, which is now an antique shop, once housed the theater, though it does extend quite far back from the street.

The owner of the antique shop currently occupying this address confirms that the building dates from the 1920s and never housed a movie theater.

July 14, 1917 newspaper article posted on Historic Binghamton FB page indicates this was originally a church and was being repurposed at that time as a cigar factory.
