September 29: The Cat and the Canary
CELEBRATE NATIONAL SILENT FILM DAY AT THE LINCOLN!
We've got a special treat for you for National Silent Film Day -- the world premiere of the brand-new 4k remaster of the 1927 silent film The Cat and the Canary, a comedic thriller full of spooky thrills and lots of laughs, presented in a new restored and remastered version.
Renowned musician Corey J. Brewer will be debuting a brand new soundtrack for the film on our stage -- composed and performed live just for us.
United States | English | 2003 | Comedy, Music | 109 minutes | PG-13
October 4: House of Wax in 3D
Horror film legend Vincent Price stars as wax sculptor Henry Jarrod, who is horrified to learn that his business partner, Matthew (Roy Roberts), plans on burning down their wax museum to collect on the insurance policy. Henry miraculously survives a fiery conflagration and re-emerges some years hence with a museum of his own -- an event which coincides with the disappearance of corpses from the local morgue!
When Jarrod meets art student Sue Allen (Phyllis Kirk) -- and realizes that she'd be the perfect "model" for a wax statue of Marie Antoinette -- his obsession puts her life in grave danger.
Equal parts gruesome and delightful, come see House of Wax the way it was meant to be seen -- on the big screen in 3D.
United States | English | 1953 | Horror | 88 minutes | GP
October 11: The Wicker Man
Join us in celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the quintessential "folk horror" classic The Wicker Man with the new 4k remaster of the director-approved final cut.
Speaking of celebrations -- there's one brewing on the remote island Summerisle, as the residents are anticipating the annual May Day festival. In their midst arrives Sgt. Neil Howie (Edward Woodward), investigating the disappearance of a child. As he questions the recalcitrant residents -- including Lord Summerisle (Christopher Lee, in what he called his favorite role) and the alluring Willow (Britt Eklund), he increasingly finds that his Christian faith is at odds with the island's pagan community.
Fifty years on, and the source of parodies, memes, and a Nicolas Cage remake, the film -- and particularly its conclusion -- remains as powerful and disturbing as ever.
United Kingdom | English | 1973 | Horror | 94 minutes | R
October 18: Frankenstein
The single most iconic monster movie of all time, Frankenstein, stomps its way back to the Lincoln screen in this special presentation hosted by special effects expert Todd Masters (True Blood, Slither).
Boris Karloff makes an indelible, unforgettable impression as the monster created by Dr. Henry Frankenstein (Colin Clive). Join us at the Lincoln and discover why Frankenstein has held audiences in thrall for over ninety years.
Screening will be accompanied by Todd Masters' presentation "How to Make a Monster," including a Q&A session.
United States | English | 1931 | Horror | 70 minutes | NR (suitable for all audiences)
October 25: Psycho
Alfred Hitchcock's infamous shocker Psycho left an permanent mark on the horror genre -- and now you can witness it in all its timeless power on our big screen, hosted by Hitchcock expert Alexandre O. Philippe (78/52: Hitchcock's Shower Scene).
When secretary Marion Crane (Janet Leigh) goes on the lam after stealing $40,000 from her employer, she stops for the night at the ramshackle Bates Motel and meets the polite but highly strung proprietor Norman Bates (Anthony Perkins), a young man with a difficult relationship with his mother.
"Rather amusing." —Alfred Hitchcock

October 26: 78/52: Hitchcock's Shower Scene
After you've seen Psycho, come back the next night and let our host Alexandre Philippe pull back the curtain with his documentary examining that film's shower scene (which was composed of 78 setups and 52 cuts).
An in-depth look at Hitchcock's most enduring imagery, the documentary features Guillermo del Toro, Jamie Lee Curtis, Peter Bogdanovich, Bret Easton Ellis, Leigh Whannell, Karyn Kusama, and more, each offering their unique insights on the screen murder that profoundly changed world cinema.
Screening will be accompanied by a Q&A with director Alexandre Philippe.
