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

If you live in the Belleville area this theatre sure beats driving to Shiloh or elsewhere. Concession stand prices are very reasonable. The main theatre has a nice vintage ornate feel and we have never had a bad experience there. Welcome change over chain theaters.
