Living in Denver Harbor after World War II and before TV, the only form of entertainment we had was the movies. We lived only a short walk from our house off Harbor Drive to the Globe Theatre on Lyons Avenue, somewhere between Harbor Drive and Majestic Avenue.
The Globe Theatre was a B movie house that showed mostly westerns like Roy Rogers and Gene Autry with a mix of Abbott and Costello, Tarzan, as well as all those wonderful serials like Superman, Batman, King of the Rocketmen and others. The theatre was run by a heavy set older lady that would grab you by the ear and throw you out if you misbehaved.
The building still stands today, or at least it did the last time I was there a few years ago. The building had become a tire shop of some sort and the revolving ball at the top of the marque was gone and replaced by an old tire. The inside was gutted with a lot of tires laying around. I have searched for a picture of the old theatre in it’s original glory but none are to be found.
