Enjoyed a great movie in a classic old theater. Wonderful decor and comfortable seating. Situated right in the middle of downtown with easy access from anywhere. Not much parking, but nice parking lot one block away.

A nice classic movie theatre! It is a great place to take in a movie! You have to wait for the movie to come around, but because this place doesn't go for the new releases the cost of going is way reasonable!! Great popcorn too!!

$3 admission per person, great concessions and fun staff. Totally worth a visit! If you don't get there early, though, gotta park a couple blocks over as it is downtown Cheyenne and not much parking out front.

Go back in time and check at a flick that often features 4 movies at the Historical Lincoln Theater. Standing outside you'll think you're in the 50s looking up at the structure of this building. If catching a late night film be ware of the several ghost people have claimed to see:)

How do you beat great prices on movies and concessions and a relaxed family atmosphere. This is our absolute favorite theater because of those things. It is not fancy but if you want fancy go pay 3x more and you can have it. We have a large family and we can go to the movies a lot without breaking the... More

This movie theater is just a nice place to go see movies that are not out on DVD, but just out of the normal movie theaters. Cheap movies, and their Popcorn is pretty good too. I like to visit it on occasion. The only thing I personally don't like about it is the bathrooms. This is because there in a... More

It's very inexpensive, right downtown, has an atmosphere reminiscent of theaters of the 40's and 50's and never overcrowded.

I love any movie at this theatre. You can look about and imagine how all the ld west movies which premiered here were. I can feel John Waynes presence,absolutely best Pop Corn anywhere? A true Wyoming treasure....

can't beat the prices for first-run movies. they've upgraded the sound and projection, why spend $9 for a movie when you can see the same thing a few weeks later for only $3?

My wife & I took our two little kids to this theater this week. The theater is old granted, but the atmosphere was nice and nostalgic. The screen was large and crisp and the audio was terrific (Surround High-def.). Because the theater is so old, the seats were a bit small, but what do you expect? The price was awsesome!... More
