Q. Why did Cine, LP decide to turn the old theater in a senior apartment complex?


A. Led by downtown developers Jeff and Vickie Doris, Linton Redevelopment, LLC received $6.5 million in tax credit financing from the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority for planning, construction and development of the Cine Senior Apartments. The former Cine Theater is an ideal fit for the apartment complex’s location in downtown Linton. The Cine Theater was a staple in Linton’s coal-boom days and the Cine Senior Apartments are a way to help revitalize the downtown-scape. The building will maintain the historic charm of Linton’s Main Street while providing updated amenities for future residents.
