The Lincoln Theatre, seating around 300, opened on South State Street, not far from the larger Vendome Theatre, around 1920. In addition to movies, the Lincoln featured live entertainment, including jazz performances during the 20s and 30s.
The theater and most of its surrounding neighbors were demolished in the late 40s to make way for Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) Main Campus. The great Chicago-based architect also headed the university’s architecture department from 1938-1958.
