Very old theatre with one screen. Recent renovations have made it a very nice attraction in Goodyear Heights. Features second run movies for discount prices. I wish I knew more of the history behind this theatre. If anyone does, please add it.

A few years ago Ron Newman asked who this theater was named for. According to this web pageit was named for Linda Alessio, daughter of the owner/builder of the house, Ernest Alessio.

Additional information about the Linda Theatre appears in the February 29, 1949, issue of Boxoffice.
