The Linden Theatre was opened on August 25, 1947 with Bing Crosby in “The Bells of St. Mary’s”. All seating was on a single level.
Taken over by the 20th Century Theatres chain, it was refurbished and reopened on July 12, 1968 as the Towne Cinema, initially a first run house. After five years, it was taken over by independent management and became a popular repertory house. It was renamed New Edinburgh Cinema from May 1989 until it closed in August 1989. The repertory house moved to the site of the Nelson Theatre on Rideau street and renamed the Bytowne Cinema, which is still there.
A pharmacy now occupies the original movie theatre space.
