Linway Cinema is a locally owned and operated first run cinema. Maple City Investment Company (MCIC) established the cinema in 1994 after acquiring the Linway Plaza Shopping Center. In 1994, the shopping center had many empty store fronts. After MCIC, a group of investors from Goshen, got involved with the shopping center, it began to gain popularity.
Today, Linway Cinema is operated by the same people who have been involved for the past 25 years. As a small business in this community, it has been our pleasure serving the people of and visitors to: Goshen, Elkhart, Middlebury, and the rest of the county! As the community has grown, so has the cinema. Our screen count has changed from the six (6) screens we opened with to the fourteen (14) we have today. We have seen 35 MM film and projection be replaced with digital equipment. And, with digital equipment we began offering RealD 3D. As our screen count increased, our building has changed. Some of our auditorium seating has changed, we have added additional restrooms and concession stands, and have even relocated our entire entrance.
While the cinema has been here since 1994, the operators have been in the cinema industry over 40 years. We continue to embrace new trends and grow with our community. So, come on in, grab a free refill of pop or popcorn, and know it is our intention to continue bringing you the best show in town!
