We went to see a pretty new release, and yet the big theater was empty save for two or three other people. It is very old and dated, and as I was sitting there waiting for the film to start, I started thinking about how this must be terrible business for them and how some new covers for the seats...

The Lincoln Theater was one of three movie houses downtown. The Lincoln is the only that remains. It was converted into two screens with the balcony now the smaller theater. It now is a second run theater and basically they want you to go in for nearly free and buy popcorn and pop. I've rented the place for some screenings... More

I will not be attending this theater again. I had a water bottle on the outside of my purse and the person working said I couldn’t bring it in okay that’s fine. I’ve been walking around all day so yes I had it with me. But then he asked me to open my purse???? I could understand if I was... More

This is a cute old-fashioned theater. They offer movies at a much lower price than other cinemas in town, however it is a chilly few hours to sit in the old building. Enjoyable, but grab a extra sweater.

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
