Glove Theatre Museum

   Museum History and Hours

The Glove Theatre Museum was established February 14, 2003 with a grant from the Holcomb Family Foundation.

It took a group of volunteers more than a year to accumulate the clippings, photos, and memorabilia of the years gone by.

The Glove Theatre Museum is open
Monday evenings from 7 pm to 9 pm the museum is open with the curator present for discussion and guiding.

Special appointment tours can be arranged by calling 518-773-8255.

   Projector Progress

This motion picture projector from the silent film era is a Simplex Carbon-Arc.

In the 1930s the Glove Theatre was one of the first theatres equipped with sound when RCA incorporated sound into the projector.

The Glove was later in the vanguard of cinemascope usage and Todd-AO, a technique of surrounding the audience with sound for greater realism.

   When Candy Bars were a Nickle

This candy machine (circa 1950) once served the Glove Theatre patrons. You could insert ten cents and get a candy bar and a nickel back. What a deal!!!!

   Usher's Uniform

This uniform was worn in the 40s and 50s by the head ushers. The Schine insignia was always on the left shoulder of the uniform. The uniform had to be pressed and presentable for the patrons of the theatre.
