Formerly one of the songwriters in the Polaris Prize nominated group Two Hours Traffic, Andy MacDonald began working on songs for the Golden Cinema EP after THT disbanded at the end of 2013. Often writing at late hours under the glow of old movies, Andy opted for the name Golden Cinema and recruited fellow THT alum Derek Ellis as well as local guitar wizards Bruce Rooney and Chris Robison.
Recorded over the summer of 2016 in Halifax, Nova Scotia with Charles Austin (Superfriendz, Aqua Alta) and mixed by Dan Griffin (Arkells), Golden Cinema's self-titled EP was released in September 2016.
