Lincoln Theatre - (South) Dallas Tx Demolished

Viewing: Photo | Street View

I couldn’t find much on the Lincoln Theater. It was opened in early-1947, and was patronized solely by African Americans at that time. As of 2004 the building was still standing vacant. It had been demolished by early 2010.

Any further information on the Lincoln Theater would be appreciated.

The November 30, 1946, issue of Boxoffice Magazine ran an item about the Lincoln Theatre, headlined “New Dallas Negro Theatre To Open Early in 1947.” The item said the new house was to have about 500 seats.
