Best Theatre

The September 8, 1956 issue of Boxoffice ran a short article, effectively an obituary, about the closing of the Glen Cinema.

“The Glen Theatre, which closed August 11, had been in continuous operation for 46 years. It originally was the Best Theatre and was operated for many years by J. E. Pennington … (who) sold the Best Theatre to the Dickinson Theatres circuit, which renamed it the Glen Theatre.”

The 1950 Film Daily Year Book listed the Glen Theatre at 405 Kansas Avenue, seating 341.
