Built in 1921, the Lincoln Theatre is a relic of the days of segregation, when the theatre was used exclusively by black audiences. In its heyday, the theatre featured such legendary talents as Duke Ellington and Fats Waller.
The Lincoln Theatre was eventually converted to a movie theater, which it remained until 1983, when it was closed.
In 1994, the theatre was purchased and once again converted into a venue for legitimate theatre. Occasional film use continues as it was used for the Reel Affirmations 17th Annual International Gay and Lesbian Film Festival in October 2007.
