Renovate the Lincoln Theatre

by Ghostlight Productions

Support the Renovation of the Historic Lincoln Theatre

As a prominent historic building, centrally located in Port Angeles since 1916, The Lincoln Theatre 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.

Today, The Lincoln Theatre Project plans to bring the old building back to life and guide The Lincoln as it transitions into a versatile, intimate venue for live theatrical productions, second-run film, concerts, and conferences.

The Lincoln is now a member of the League of Historic American Theatres. As a member, The Lincoln has access to many resources specific to the rescue, restoration, rehabilitation and adaptive reuse of an historic theatre. 

Ghostlight Productions is The Lincoln's marvelous principal resident theatre company and has partnered with the project as a fiscal sponsor. Currently a traveling theatre company, they are looking forward to making The Lincoln their permanent home. Ghostlight Productions is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded with the mission to “entertain, educate, and enhance the quality of life in our community through excellence in the performing arts”.
