A CELEBRATION OF OUR ENVIRONMENT!

The Wild & Scenic Film Festival returns to the Lincoln Theatre.

The Skagit Fisheries Enhancement Group (SFEG) is excited to bring the Wild & Scenic Film Festival back to the Historic Lincoln Theater for one night only on Friday, October 20th.  This evening of short films will kick off with a reception starting at 6:30 pm in the Lincoln’s Art Bar followed by the film showing at 7:30 pm. 

The Film Festival will feature short films that will delight the senses, inform our minds and help us appreciate nature and the struggles to protect it.  Films were selected from a collection of over 100 films shown at the annual film festival held in Nevada City, CA. The films capture the spirit of varying environmental movements across the globe and the relationship that they have to humanity and that humanity has to them. The Wild & Scenic Film Festival works with environmental groups across the globe to host On Tour events as a way to outreach into different communities and bring together a diverse audience.

What Dreams May Come is the eighth installment in our Spectacular Spectacular series of films meant to be seen on a big screen and is sponsored by Jeff McInnis and Amanda Wilson.

Despite everything we have experienced and all we have seen, nothing can prepare us for the wonders of what lies beyond. Academy Award Winner Robin Williams is about to take you on an amazing journey...through heaven and hell. To rediscover the meaning of life...and the wonders of love.

What Dreams May Come is a 1998 American fantasy drama film, starring Robin Williams and Cuba Gooding Jr. The film is based on the 1978 novel of the same name by Richard Matheson, and was directed by Vincent Ward. It won the Academy Award for Best Visual Effects and the Art Directors Guild Award for Excellence in Production Design. It was also nominated for the Academy Award for Best Art Direction. The title is from a line in Hamlet's "To be, or not to be" soliloquy.

National Theatre Live

National Theatre Live launched in June 2009 with a broadcast of the National Theatre production of Phèdre with Helen Mirren and the Lincoln Theatre has been there from the start.

Past broadcasts include Danny Boyle's Frankenstein with Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller, One Man, Two Guvnors with James Corden and The Last of the Haussmans with Julie Walters. Now NT Live has just announced their new season that we are excited to present: The Threepenny Opera, No Man's Land, Amadeus, Saint Joan, and Hedda Gabler.

THE DIOBSUD CREEK SERIES: Oil Paintings by Paul Blum

I have been painting in oil now for 9 years, and my work has evolved from paintings of Mt. Baker and the Cascades and mask-like faces to paintings influenced by a weekend with my wife and friends in a cabin near Marblemont along the Diobsud Creek, in the rainforest.  The sunlight shattered by the thick canopy of the Fir and Cedar, the night of wonderful music we all made, and the moonlight all had a lasting affect on me.  I’m really enjoying my new style.
