Lincoln Theatre DC History

The Lincoln Theatre first opened to the public in 1922, originally hosting silent films and vaudeville. The venue opened as a place for the black community to take in theatrical entertainment, and all kinds of big-name performers lit up the spotlight at the venue through the 1950s, including renowned artists like Duke Ellington, Billie Holiday, Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald and Lionel Hampton. The theater began declining in the 1950s when desegregation made it possible for African Americans to catch performances at other area venues, and eventually in the 1960s the theater fell into disrepair, with the 1968 race riots in D.C. serving as the last straw before the venue closed. With restoration in the 1990s, however, the Lincoln Theatre finally re-opened in 1994, and the 1,200 seat venue has been an area favorite ever since then.
