Sound + Hearing Campaign

To make a donation click here and select Sound + Hearing Campaing as your designated donation.

In 2016 the Lincoln Theatre kicked off its Sound + Hearing Campaign, a $150,000 campaign aimed at upgrading the sound system of our beloved historic theatre. The Lincoln is becoming a key stop for national and international performers and sound technology has changed dramatically over the last decade. In March of 2018 we celebrated the completion of the first phase of our campaign with the installation of a brand new state-of-the-art sound system.


"As a talent manager, my favorite venues are the restored theatres which used to exist in almost every city throughout the USA. These beautiful structures seem to be harder to find every single year. The Lincoln Theatre in Mount Vernon, WA is one of those treasures we love so much. The community is a better place for it. The theatre can best serve its audiences by keeping its sound system up to date and accessible to the hearing impaired as well as retaining the look and feel of those good ol’ days gone by. On behalf of Albert Lee, Cindy Cashdollar and me, we hope you can meet your goal and look forward to the day we can return." Jim Cowan

Now, we are setting our sights on phase two which will see the instillation of a full hearing loop system and the purchase of  new wireless microphones to be used during live theatrical performances.

"The inclusion of a hearing loop in the theater's Sound + Hearing Campaign will be a perfect complement, to create a sound system serving all your patrons. The approximately 4800 hearing impaired residents in Skagit County will have the opportunity to participate and enjoy a night at the theater! "~Jerry & Joanna Olmstead volunteers
