What is unique about your venue?
The Lincoln Theatre is unique in its age and its restored beauty. We are on the national registry of historic places, which means that all updates and changes we make to the inside of the theatre must look the same as it would have when the theatre opened in 1926. What that means for you is that you get a beautiful vintage feel in a fully restored space.
What amenities do you have to offer for weddings?
The Lincoln offers a seating capacity of 486 guests as well as a full stage which can also be built out to accommodate more space for both ceremony and reception. A portion of our seats are removable which can account for extra stage space OR space for reception in front of the stage. We also offer a green room and dressing rooms, available for getting ready and prep space. Special equipment and video projection is also available subject to availability and cost.
