The Glove Theatre is a historic theater located at 42 North Main Street in Gloversville, New York, that now houses regional theatrical shows.

It opened in 1914 as an 800-seat theater to present live performances including vaudeville shows, orchestral concerts, and opera. It was designed in 1913 by Linn Kinne of Utica for Cady & Dartch.[1] The marquee was added in 1939.[2]

After the theater's heyday in the 1950s, it presented films, and then closed in the 1970s. In 1995, a plan arose to tear the theater down to become a parking lot, but community action stopped this from happening, and volunteers have run the theater since then.[2]
