When the new Century College Theater opened in 1938, the Glenwood which was lovated only two short blocks away on Flatbush Avenue was closed. It was later a bowling alley and then a catering hall post WW2. It was only a couple blocks south of the Century Farragut Theater.

The Glenwood Theater is listed as having 565 seats in the Film Daily Yearbook, 1930. It has disappeared from listings in the 1950 edition of F.D.Y.

In a posting on the ‘other’ Glenwood Theatre, located on Myrtle Ave /theaters/4623/ Orlando says that ‘this’ Flatbush Ave, Glenwood Theater originally opened as the Antoinette Theatre.
