"new dimension in luxury theaters" and was located in a Kansas suburb of Kansas City. It's lobby featured a 15' x 15' crystal chandelier and hostesses escorted movie patrons to their seats in front of the 70' x 35' screen. When I asked my father if he remembered the Glenwood he said, "yeah, that was the really fancy theater."
My mother has always been a big fan of "Gone With the Wind," so it must have been extra special to see it as a 13-year-old at such a nice theater, especially since it would have been more than an hour's drive from her home.
