The main theater is a beautiful, elegant old theater with the original velvet seats, cast plaster details and a working organ - with professional performances on Fri and Sat evenings. The smaller theaters - upstairs - are just that - small. But for the price...More

We love to go to movies here from time to time. The prices are great but it's old and original and the seats have seen some wear and tear but it's pretty cool considering it's age.

It's a Time Warp! When arriving you pay a person $7.00 behind a round cage, get a paper ticket and walk into a 50 to 100 year old entrance way leading to the refreshment counter. The only thing that is not in the '50's are...More

Should clarify, we love the Lincoln's main theater. The upper theaters are far too small and cramped. The main theater is great! The prices here are fantastic, they have a generous rewards program as well. Popcorn is the best in the area, bring your Lincoln...More

I love the nostalgia of the old time feel in the large main floor theatre! On the other hand, I dislike the two smaller very steep theatres. I almost feel like I'm falling out of my seat. I don't quite understand this because the seats...More

Pros: * I LOVE the volunteer organists - and I'm not an "old fart," LOL. It's just that there is nothing else like it anywhere I have ever seen. They play the organ every Friday and Saturday before the evening shows and on some Sundays...More

Hadn't been here in a while. The theatre is pretty shabby. We were upstairs in one of the smaller theatres and some of the seats had signs on them because they were broken. Carpet was stained and showing it's age. Went here a lot as...More

My family and I have been seeing movies at the Lincoln for the past 10 years. I prefer the Lincoln over the other big-name theaters not only because of the nostalgia, but for the great prices. An entire family can go to the movies for...More

The Lincoln is a hold over from the 1920s. But locally owned and not over priced. Yes it needs some updating, but I have been going there for the last 50 some years. The popcorn is great and you can stop by their popcorn store...More
