It's that time of year again!
The 10th annual Porterhouse Brewfest is back again on its usual summer Saturday on Gates Street between the River and 1st Street (...that's right in front of the Porterhouse restaurant in downtown Mount Vernon, for those that haven't been before). This is the best way to have some summer fun and support the Lincoln Theatre, as all proceeds benefit the Lincoln Theatre Center Foundation and its mission of operating the historic space and presenting programs for our community.
For live entertainment, the Lincoln is proud to present some of the hottest blues bands around:
Wired (International Blues Challenge Champions) - 2:00 to 3:00pm
Mary McPage Band - 3:30 to 5:00pm
Red House - 5:30 to 7:00pm
Mayor Boudreau would like to hear from YOU.
City of Mount Vernon Mayor Jill Boudreau's Coffee Hour will be hosted this week by the Lincoln Theatre. Jill's Coffee Hours are held several times each month at convenient locations throughout the city to make it easy for you to attend and let your voices be heard.
Bring your interests, comments, concerns and praises to chat with the Mayor over a cup of joe. Whether you are a business owner, community member or just a curious neighbor, we want to see YOU there!
Washington Sips Loves the Lincoln!
Long time supporters Nell Thorn of La Conner invites all members and friends of the Lincoln Theatre and, indeed, all of Skagit County and beyond, to join in supporting the Lincoln Theatre. Nell Thorn will donate 15% of all gross sales for Monday, July 9, to the Lincoln. Nell Thorn, undoubtedly one of the finest restaurants in Skagit County, is a locally owned brick-and-mortar business employing local people, buying locally sourced goods and services, paying local taxes, and generally supporting the local community.
This June and July, the Metropolitan Opera will present encore presentations of six Live in HD performances in hundreds of movie theaters across the United States including the Historic Lincoln Theatre.

The Ring at the Met
The Metropolitan Opera’s new production of Wagner’s Der Ring des Nibelungen features a cast of today’s greatest Wagnerian singers, led by Bryn Terfel (Wotan), Deborah Voigt (Brünnhilde), Jay Hunter Morris (Siegfried), and Jonas Kaufmann (Siegmund). The four-opera epic is directed by Robert Lepage and conducted by Met Music Director James Levine and the company’s Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi. The production premiered at the Met over the course of the 2010–11 and 2011–12 seasons.
Join us this weekend for our annual Open House that coincides with the Tulip Festival Street Fair.
While you're enjoying the festival sites, sounds and tastes please stop by the Lincoln for free popcorn and soda (while supplies last) and a tour of our Historic Theatre and Wurlitzer organ. Board members, theatre organists and other volunteers will be on hand to answer your questions.
We'll be open from noon to five Friday and Saturday.
