Lincoln Theater, Mount Vernon, WA - 2011

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Lincoln Theatre is a modified Mediterranean Renaissance style wonder theater in the heart of downtown, rural Mount Vernon, WA.

The theater’s ornate auditorium is characterized by stenciled plaster wall panels that simulate tapestries, gold beams across a ceiling of pale blue, a proscenium arch with red rosettes and striped serpentine columns, plus canvas awnings and painted grills on the organ lofts. One of the most notable features of the interior is the Wurlitzer organ, which are increasingly rare.

The exterior of the theater features a yellow brick facade, with terra cotta rosettes and shields.
