Globe Cinema

Opened as the single screen Towne Cinema March 19, 1965 with Sophia Loren in “Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow” and Judy Cannon in “A Comedy Tale of Fanny Hill”. It was twinned in 1973. Seating was listed at 756 with 378 in each auditorium. The theatre closed for a short time in 1995 until Landmark Cinemas took over operations and it was renamed Globe Cinema. In operation today playing first run attractions, since 2016 it has been operated by Riley’s Entertainment.

The Globe is no longer part of Landmark and has not been since 2016, as it has not been listed among Landmark’s theatres since then. It’s now an independent under the ownership of Riley’s Entertainment and its current website is here:

Also in addition to Landmark (which originally ran it), Cineplex Odeon ran this theatre when it was the Towne from 1985 (see link below) until 1995, when Landmark took back over and renamed it the Globe.
