The Lincoln Theatre opened in 1929. Its interior includes six large paintings on the walls that show scenes of American and Virginia history.

It was closed as a movie theatre in 1977. In 1992 it was listed on the Register of Historic Places.

The Lincoln Theatre was fully restored in 2004 and serves as a performing arts center.
