I used to go there all the time with my friends and we never had a problem with the quality of the place. As a preteen and early teenager, it was a good place to scope out girls. I never cared for it much, however, as I preferred the larger theaters at Old Orchard & nearby Golf Mill (both now gone as well. Why did this one last?). By the time the mid-90s rolled around, it looked hopelessly dated. Last time I was there was for “A Very Brady Sequel.” (‘96?) I thought I’d timewarped back to my 80s gradeschool/high school days. The place hadn’t changed a bit, and as someone pointed out, looked pretty ramshackle.

This theater used to be a 24 hour “A & P” grocery store in the early 80’s, I lived right behind there on Dee Road.

The only time that I went to the Golf Glen is in 2001 to see “America’s Sweethearts”. Yes, the seats were once red but tight also. It was originally opened by Essaness Theaters, then Plitt took over, then Cineplex Odeon, the Loews/Cineplex and finally Village Theaters.
