“Movie Theater with a History”
Review of Lincoln Theater

Lincoln Theater
Ranked #4 of 17 things to do in Belleville
Attraction details
Reviewed 15 July 2014

This place has been a part of Belleville city history since 1921. Upgraded as the years pass, it's just as much fun as it was since the first time I visited there over 40 years ago to see The Exorcist! Prices are comparable to other indoor movies, still has a great selection of shows to choose from, still the same culinary amenities as in the past. A nice way to spend the afternoon, or an evening with your best buddy.

Legend has it that it is haunted. Ticket price is very good and the refreshments are not the typical arm and leg prices. Check out Abe's flavored popcorn. Pipe organ in main hall really works! Just very good value.

This is a great little theater, like stepping back in history. The show is clean, comfortable and the shows look fine.

We love the Lincoln Theatre and go here quite frequently. Cheaper tickets for the same movies the other theatres play, plus there are student and senior discounts. They are the only theatre in this area that offer pickles! Would recommend to anybody in town!

What did we like best? The organist who played music before the show began!!

Where else can you find such a thing, in small-town America? In addition to the price of your theater ticket, you get a FREE CONCERT before the Saturday evening films.

The theater has been preserved and is very large -- we wish it offered more special events, like the Wildey in Edwardsville. And we noticed there is a bit of riff-raff in the audience (talking loudly, roughhousing, etc).

But perhaps that is because The Lincoln offers such low prices on tickets? We were pleased with our experience, and will go back on Saturday night, the next time we're in the area -- especially to enjoy the Organist. :)
