   The Glen Theatre is located on the corner of Baltimore Annapolis Blvd at Crain Highway. The entrance is at an angle, as seen in the insurance map shown above. During the summer, the Glen Theatre advised it was " Healthfully air-conditioned " . Below, you can see the old theatre's office office, which still faces Baltimore Annapolis Highway. By 1941, Glen Burnie had a second theater, the New Glen. The Glen closed around the 1960's, but the New Glen went over to X Rated films, before it finally closed down. In 1951, a check of the theatre showed that it seated 450, and was more than doubled in seating space at the newer New Glen Theatre, just a block away.

    While newspaper ads were a good method of letting people know of coming attractions, many movie theatres, including the Glen Theatre used direct mailings , such as the two mail cards shown here. They were like postcards, which would let you know what was showing in the coming weeks. These cards date back to the 1930's.
