Lincoln Theater Project

Lincoln Theater Renovations 
Donations are needed to renovate and re-open the historic Port Angeles Lincoln Theater. 

Current Project: Lincoln Theater Restrooms
Fundraising Goal: $65,000

As a prominent historic building, centrally located in Port Angeles since 1916, The Lincoln Theater has generated many fond memories for Port Angeles and Olympic Peninsula residents alike. The Lincoln has seen much change during its lifetime. Its most recent use was as a three-screen movie theater. But, with the building of a large cinema complex on the outskirts of Port Angeles, and digital conversion proving too costly, this was no longer a viable option, and in 2014 the theater closed.  Since then, The Lincoln Theater has sat vacant in a premium location in the town.

The Lincoln Theater Project plans to bring the old building back to life and guide The Lincoln Theater as it begins its new journey, to move with the times, and make the transition into a versatile, intimate venue for second-run film, live music, theatrical performances and inspiring programs which will entertain, enrich and educate the local and extended community, while preserving The Lincoln as a key historic landmark for generations to come.
