Lincoln Theater

The historic Lincoln Theater on U Street may close next week due to a severe lack of funds. There's an emergency board meeting tonight at the building at 6 pm to see if there's a way to keep it open. Built in 1922, the theater has been an important part of DC's cultural heritage, with locals like Duke Ellington and Pearl Bailey on the impressive list of people who have performed there.
