Digital Records: The Lincoln Theatre Artifacts/Signs

A schedule of the upcoming events is posted in the windows on either side of the theatre. The list is probably rotated fairly regularly since it only spans four months worth of events. A major highlight of the Lincoln Theatre is the huge sign on its right side that says “LINCOLN”. The sign is a staple of its appearance that has been kept in the same place since it was built (which I saw after looking at old pictures of the building).
