The Globe Theatre opened on November 2, 1912 with the films, “The Refugee’s Casket,” “White Treachery,” and “All Account of a Handkerchief.” The architect of the theatre was Frederick L. Brown.

From the windows punched into the side walls I’d say it was gutted. Looks like offices more than storage.

My family moved into a house on Beech street in South Side about a block up from the Globe Theater in June of 1964. The theater was closed then. Kids that lived nearby said it had just closed recently and they used to go to movies there really cheep on the weekends.I remember the building well because I walked by it every day on my way to school at South Scranton Jr High School. Across the street from the Globe was a small Acme market that was open till about 1965 or 66. After the Globe closed it was used by a moving company. I don’t remember the name.After the Globe closed we had to walk into downtown Scranton to go to the movies.
