Opened as The Towne in 1958, the theater was twinned in 1979 and triplexed by 1984 when it became known as the The Towne 3.

Originally, The Towne had a balcony, but in the late-1970’s it was turned into a cafĂ©. This theater was owned by C & J Dederer.

The opening of the Towne Theatre was noted in the March 31, 1956 issue of Boxoffice. Owner Adolph Dederer had entered the theater business at Medicine Hat in 1941 (Boxoffice mistakenly says 1942) when he opened the Astra Theatre.
