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.

We welcome your comments and suggestions. We invite you to join the Lincoln community. Get membership details here.
