I often went to the Glenwood in the 1940 era. As you entered you walked straight ahead to the ticket taker. The foyer had posters of coming attractions. Once past him, the candy stand was on the immediate left. If you walked straight ahead you would go directly into the ladies room. To the right of that was a staircase that went up to the mens room and projection booth. Candy used to be a nickle and the Glenwood had the innovation of selling frozen Milky Ways on a stick for six cents. By law there was a childrens section, where a matron had to be in attendance, for unescorted children. That was usually on the left bank of seats, halfway down and to the screen. There would be Saturday matinees with prizes for the first 50 or so kids. Kid movies would be shown, like Dracula, Frankenstein, Abbot and Costello, a three stooge two reeler, cartoons and a chapter from a serial. Great days, gentler times.
