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.

National Theatre Live

National Theatre Live launched in June 2009 with a broadcast of the National Theatre production of Phèdre with Helen Mirren and the Lincoln Theatre has been there from the start. They've since broadcast more than twenty other productions live from the National Theatre, and on occasion other theatres in the UK and we've screened them all.

Past broadcasts include Danny Boyle's Frankenstein with Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller, One Man, Two Guvnors with James Corden and The Last of the Haussmans with Julie Walters. This past season has included Coriolanus and War Horse and now NT Live has just announced their new season that we are excited to present: A Streetcar Named Desire, Skylight, Of Mice and Men, JOHN & Treasure Island.

Though each live broadcast is filmed in front of a live audience in the theatre, cameras are carefully positioned throughout the auditorium to ensure that cinema audiences get the 'best seat in the house' view of each production.

In the Art Bar - Joshua Parrot

I spent my childhood summers in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan where I discovered my love for all critters and the beauty of nature.  I grew up fascinated with mammals but only in my thirties did I discover the wonder and accessibility of birds. Now I am fully addicted to finding and viewing birds. As a long-haul truck driver for Allied Van Lines, I have had the good fortune of being able to travel across this nation and discover the various birds of America’s different geographic areas. I hope to travel the world and photograph and experience as many different species as possible. I enjoy showing people how wonderful the natural world is and in so doing convince people to make choices that will preserve earth’s amazing creatures.
I feel very fortunate to live in Washington State where almost five hundred different species of birds have been seen and where there is an amazing diversity of mammals. From the Northern Spotted Owl to Woodland Caribou, Washington is home to species few other states can claim.
