RSVP, the retired and senior volunteer program, hosts an appreciation for all of their volunteers over the past year at the Historic Lincoln Theatre. All volunteers who participated in the RSVP program are invited to attend this event. Awards, prizes, refreshments and entertainment will be provided.
“Producer’s Night,” our annual fundraiser, is scheduled
for Saturday, May 22 at 7:00 PM at the theatre. This event
is planned and sponsored by the members of the Board
of Directors and raises the much needed funding used for
maintaining the Lincoln Theatre and providing arts and entertainment
for the community in the coming year. Since
last September, members of the board have been working
with the theatre staff to put together an event that
all our members and friends will enjoy and remember.
It is hard to believe June is almost here, and the Lincoln is wrapping up another year of exciting programming. The 2009-2010 season brought us the first year of live broadcasts from New York and London, as well as new performers like Cambalache and Jason Webley. Our space may be historic, but the art we present strives to remain relevant to our changing world. It is this combination that makes the Lincoln such a unique asset for all of us throughout the region. To celebrate this I hope you will join us on May 22 as we hold our annual Producer’s Night fundraiser.
What is Producer's Night?
Producer's Night is an exciting evening filled with performances, film shorts, a silent auction, and many surprises!
This year's event features refreshments from Max Dale's, complimentary wine, champagne cocktails and mixed drinks, and live performances by The Blues Abuses and singers from META's upcoming production of Annie!
The Lincoln is happy to present a discussion of how to change your life and the lives of children you love. This event is a conversation to impart three dynamic life skills for immediate impact and growth. Marta, a sought after trainer & speaker, brings 14 years as a trauma recovery therapist & more than 30 years as a dynamic, entertaining & informative trainer to her sessions.
This evening is a chance to redefine how you approach young people, and
how you can help them realize their greatest potential throughout their life.
According to Cascadia Weekly:
"When it comes to entertainment, voters made it clear Mount Vernon's Lincoln Theatre is the place they go. While it's cool that the restored vaudeville house (circa 1926) is a living piece of history, it's probably the fact they can see regional theatre. nationally lauded musical acts like the Wailin' Jennys, and both contemporary and classic films at the eye-cathching space that keeps them coming back."
We couldn't have put it better ourselves. Thanks to all of our patrons who voted!

For all you nighthawks the Historic Lincoln Theatre is screening a series of Late Nite films with a focus on the cult movies of our past. Many of these films have acquired a highly devoted but specific group of (often obsessive) fans, some have gone on to transcend their original cult status and have become recognized as classics; others are of the "so bad it's good" variety and are destined to remain in obscurity.
