The Glen Theatre, one of a few theaters within the bounds of the former Town of Lansingburgh was in Batestown at 3280 Fifth Avenue between Glen Avenue and Douw Street, and seems to have operated from about 1915 to 1922. The address is currently occupied by Troy Bike Rescue.
By means of an agreement between members of the Ladies’ Auxiliary of St. Patrick’s Church and the management of the Glen Theatre on Sixth Avenue a portion of the theatre’s receupts on Saturday afternoon and night was contributed to the church building fund. The ladies sold special tickets to residents of the parish and the enterprise nettted the fund about $30.

At a mass-meeting of sportsmen at the Glen Theatre last evening called by the Trojan Rod and Gun Club Dr. Henry B. Ward, a zoologist of the University of Illinois, a former Trojan and member of the old Troy Rifle Club, presented the new organization with a cut of the emblem of the Rifle Club. He gave a talk on “The Pollution of Streams.” Motion pictures of conservation activities and wild animal life were shown. One scene showed Troy Boy Scouts feeding deer near this city in the winter time in co-operation with members of the Conservation Commission. Among other speakers were Henry Teal, who told of game life and its protection, and John C. Norak, who spoke on the Boy Scout movement as an aid to conservation.
The officers of this club are: President George D. Founks; Vice President, Warren B. Iler; Secretary, Henry Nelson; Trustees, Bert Falle, William Stufflebein and Henry A. Teal.

The Glen Theatre at the corner of Glen and Sixth Avenues was to-day ordered closed by Superintendent of Buildings Haynes, making the third moving-picture house to come under the ban within a week. The place will remain closed until alterations suggested by the Superintendent are made.
Superintendent Haynes also stopped construction on the new Campbell garage on Fifth Avenue and One Hundred and Eighth Streets. Failure to comply with building regulations in connection with the fire laws was the reason for the official’s action.
