A Letter From the Lincoln Theatre Executive Director - Thomas Mayes

Though the cool spring may not have been any indication, summer time is finally here. One year ago the Lincoln was facing a very tough financial situation, and had to close down for July and August, Now we are not ‘out of the water’ financially, but we are happy to be able to bring programs to the community this summer. Films will be shown three days per week, and the highly popular Met opera series offers summer encores on Wednesdays and select Saturdays as well.

The Lincoln is excited about our upcoming summer film selections. Please click on the titles for more information.

RSVP Volunteer Recognition

Sunday, Jun 13, 1:00 pm

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.

Lincoln voted Best Theatre by Cascadia Weekly readers

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!
