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.

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

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
