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. The views and opinions expressed are solely those of the authors, artists, and speakers and do not necessarily reflect or represent the views and opinions held by the Board of Directors, staff, volunteers, or members of the Lincoln Theatre Center Foundation.

In The Wind Rises, Jiro dreams of flying and designing beautiful airplanes, inspired by the famous Italian aeronautical designer Caproni. Nearsighted from a young age and unable to be a pilot, Jiro joins a major Japanese engineering company in 1927 and becomes one of the world's most innovative and accomplished airplane designers.
Say it isn't so. Hayao Miyazaki's final film? He's said it before so we can only hope it's not true this time. My family has grown up with all of the films from the Studio Ghibli co-founder. Some of our favorites include: My Neighbor Totoro, Kiki's Delivery Service, Porco Rosso, Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, Howl's Moving Castle & Ponyo. These are all beautifully hand drawn films that adults will enjoy as much as children.

In the Art Bar - Julie Bishop

Julie Bishop creates her kaleidoscopes from her photographs of local Skagit images, including tulips and other flowers. She views the creation of them as a type of meditation practice, finds joy in the colors, designs and images she creates, and hopes that they give you joy and pleasure too!
