Tulip Festival Street Fair Weekend Events

Friday, Apr 16, 12:00 pm
Saturday, Apr 17, 12:00 pm
Sunday, Apr 18, 10:00 am

In addition to this weekend's crowd pleasing adventure-fantasy film Percy Jackson and the Olympians the Historic Lincoln Theatre, for this weekend's Tulip Festival Street Fair, will present these other great family entertainments: on Saturday, as part of our Community Day, we present two bargain priced shows: The Green Bird at 12:00PM and

Late Nite with the Lincoln

$8 General; $6 Members; $4 12 & under (when applicable)

For all you nighthawks the Historic Lincoln Theatre is screening a series of Late Nite films with a focus on the cult movies of our past. Many of these films have acquired a highly devoted but specific group of (often obsessive) fans, some have gone on to transcend their original cult status and have become recognized as classics; others are of the "so bad it's good" variety and are destined to remain in obscurity.

In The Art Bar -- FLYNNSPIRATIONS: Photos by Tony Flynn

Tony Flynn has lived in the Mount Vernon area since moving here in 1979 to attend Skagit Valley College. In 1983 he began a career in journalism at the Skagit Argus newspaper that spanned 24 years, which changed in 2007 when he retired to pursue his artistic side in the field of photography.

HELP FOR HAITI- The Lincoln Announces a Benefit Concert Saturday, January 23rd

In light of the horrific events surrounding the earthquake this week in Haiti, the Lincoln Theatre has announced that net proceeds from Cambalache, the Northwest’s hottest live salsa band, will be donated to the William J. Clinton Foundation.  Ticket prices have been dropped to $15 general admission, to allow as many community members as possible to come together and make an impact in the face of a world tragedy.  To take part in this benefit, visit or call 360-336-8955.

Happy New Year!  As we enter 2010, you will notice some changes to the format of our Lincoln guide.  Most notably, we have moved to a two-month printed schedule of events, and will begin booking our films on a week-to-week basis, as other theatres do.  While I acknowledge this is quite a change from the past, I want to tell you how this benefits the organization and you, the patron:

LeRoy Bell & His Only Friends

Festival Seating
Toys for Tots Benefit

In three short years singer/songwriter LeRoy Bell has built a reputation and a national fan base that eagerly awaits the release of his first full length CD, TWO SIDES TO EVERY STORY. The sonic stratification of multiple guitars, strings, percussion and bass, provide the lushlayers and textures that allow Bells earthy, soulful voice to whisper and soar with emotion. The honesty of his voice and lyrics makes you feel as if each song is being sung directly to each listener.
