with little fanfare, the Lincoln reopened with two screens on July 27th, 1982, and three on December 17, 1982. Ads posted.

The Lincoln is within walking distance of the courthouse and Courthouse Square (which is actually a roundabout circle).

An interesting temporary use for the theatre during COVID.

1969 photo added via Arnold Fusco. Original marquee with vertical sign, and hanging letters instead of clear plastic as now.

Even though it opened as the Lincoln, the original plan was to name it the ARCADE.

The architect of the Lincoln Theatre was William Henry Gruen.
