The Cine Theater is located in a historic district in Linton. This information comes from the National Register of Historic Places:

“Bob and Lawrence Scherer, proprietors, hired Chicago architects Erwin G. Frederick and John T. Fritz in 1938 to build the Cine. To fit the 850 seat theater on the site, the owners and architects were forced to demolish two buildings and the back halves of the surviving buildings to the north. The Main Street bays serve as lobby and entryway, and the auditorium portion is positioned ninety degrees to the front section, extending north from the back of the Main Street section”.
