This theater is in a small town (16,000) people. It has been renovated and is beautiful. The restrooms are especially nice. The seats in the new section are very comfortable! The staff is always pleasant. They use half dollars!

Beautiful building with great prices, comfy seats and first run movies. Six theatres feature new stadium seating, while two theatres are located in the original building and are a bit dated. Love this place!

Love the new theatre! It's very nice. Usually is very clean. When I arrived and entered the theatre, there was garbage in the seats. Thankfully this isn't the norm.

Just passing through decided to hit a movie. Asked to see if they had military discount - answer was no from the manager - it was obvious he did not like military - too bad, very cool town. Semper Fi.

I was surprised how nice the Lincoln Grand is these days. Much nicer than anything I remember from my college days. Clean and comfortable theaters.

The Lincoln Grand 8 theater is a recently renovated and expanded landmark theater in Lincoln. It is beautifully and elegantly done! The popcorn is the BEST with REAL butter as an option. The seats are comfortable and the bathrooms are really special. Really!
