The Lincoln Theatre was definitely in operation by mid-1921. Construction began in 1920, but I haven’t been able to discover if it opened late that year or early in 1921.

According to “The Encyclopedia of the American Theatre Organ” by Mr. David Junchen, pg. 629, the “Lincoln Th.” in Goshen, Indiana, had a Smith theatre pipe organ installed at some point.

No other information, such as size (# of manuals / # of ranks), install date, blower info, or nameplate (Seeburg-Smith, Smith, or Smith-Geneva) is given in the book, meaning that this info was not known at the time of publication.

Does anybody know any more about this organ, and where it, or its parts, is/are today?

Does anybody know any more about this theatre and know when it opened and when it was demolished?

Are there any interior or exterior photos?

The address 126 E. Lincoln must have been on the south side of the street just west of 5th Street. There’s a parking lot taking up the whole half block from 5th Street to the alley now. The Lincoln Theatre is gone.
