The Glenwood Arts Theater is located on the east side of Metcalf Avenue South at W. 95th Street. It opened around 2004, replacing the Glenwood Theatre further along the avenue. The street sign from the old (now demolished theatre) was re-instated at this new location.

Originally the Metcalf Theatre and built by Commonwealth, was taken over by National General, later operated by Mann, and part of the Dickinson purchase of Mann in the Midwest. This originally was a single screen, and twinned by Mann. I am not sure when the 3rd screen was added. This theatre was ‘just down the street’ from the Glenwood Theatre which is now demolished.

I’ve seen three movies here: Young@Heart and Jack Goes Boating in the main auditorium and The Music Never Stopped in one of the small ones. The big auditorium is one of my favorite auditoriums in a theatre (the old lobby cards in the hallways are a nice touch) while the small auditorium I was in was nothing special.

The theatre was completely remodeled before being opened by the Fine Arts Group. The two theatres were removed and the layout changed to make one large (1) and two smaller screens (2 and 3).

Added at this time was the coffee and ice cream bar and the fixtures salvaged from various theatres, including the former Glenwood.

This theatre is home to the annual Kansas International Film Festival (KIFF), formerly the Halfway to Hollywood (H2H) film festival, and the Chinese Film Festival.
