The Lincoln Theatre is a cultural resource for the greater Skagit County area. We serve as a venue for quality cinema, educational programs, live performing artists, and exhibitions of fine art. We also, on occasion, sponsor or co-sponsor events that we believe to be of interest to our community. In all cases, the Lincoln strives to ensure that your theatre experience is enjoyable and entertaining.

Cinematographers, educators, performing artists, fine artists and others present their programs free of censorship or interference from the Lincoln Theatre. We are not arbiters of taste. Neither do we purport to define the values of our community or its individual citizens.

A sequel to one my favorite films, 2010's THE TRIP, Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon reunite for a new culinary road trip, THE TRIP TO ITALY, retracing the steps of the Romantic poets’ grand tour of Italy and indulging in some sparkling banter and impersonation-offs. Rewhetting our palates from the earlier film, the characters enjoy mouthwatering meals in gorgeous settings from Liguria to Capri while riffing on subjects as varied as Batman’s vocal register, the artistic merits of “Jagged Little Pill,” and, of course, the virtue of sequels.

In the Art Bar: Terrestrial -

Works by 3 sisters on an inter-species dreamscape

Kelley Vance

encounters with the wild
verge on the surreal
even as everything connects
a single organism - this planet earth
still, when paths cross,
some sense of other-worldliness
not unlike the language of dreams
though even our dreams are terrestrial
whether they break our hearts
or lift us up beyond coughing traffic
noise of cities
they are born of earth
how could they not be?
& to not heed the intersection of all things
is to blithely jettison the ‘chute
when the plane is in tailspin -
an endless abandonment of these,
the “better angels of our nature”
