The Glove Theatre, built-in 1914, is a hidden treasure in downtown Gloversville, New York. The Glove Theatre was originally designed as an 800-seat theater that could show an array of performances, from vaudeville, concerts, and ultimately movies. It did not originally have a grand marque, but in 1939 the current marque was installed to resemble other local theaters. Through the 1950s, it was one of the largest theater venues in Fulton and Montgomery Counties, and thereafter ran movies until closing in the 1970s. Since 1995, the theater has been maintained by a local group of volunteers. More recently, The Glove Theatre has hosted performances and artists such as Sawyer Fredricks and Beatle Mania.
