I provided this photo from the Bessemer Hall of History Museum. It is a photo of the original Lincoln built in 1948. I have also provided this website a good bit of known information about the theater. I am a lawyer and life-long Bessemer citizen and because I love movies and have always wanted to be able to show the movies I like, and the notion hit me to look into the restoration of this theater. I assure you the provided information is accurate and corrects all the erroneous comments made on here.

The insurance company might have moved to another location. None of the buildings in the photo look like they are occupied.

Could be. Maybe Brazil is a chain of agencies in Alabama. Address is unknown at this point.

I already thought about that but didn’t post the address because this website claims that the Lincoln Theater was located on First Avenue in Bessemer.

Thanks for the photo. The Brazil Insurance Agency is located at 712 18th Street North, so presumably the former theater is also on 18th Street.
