Academy Award Winner: Best Actress Olivia Early 18th century.

England is at war with the French. Nevertheless, duck racing and pineapple eating are thriving. A frail Queen Anne (Olivia Colman) occupies the throne and her close friend Lady Sarah Churchill (Rachel Weisz) governs the country in her stead while tending to Anne's ill health and a mercurial temper. When a new servant Abigail Masham (Emma Stone) arrives, her charm endears her to Sarah. Sarah takes Abigail under her wing and Abigail sees a chance at a return to her aristocratic roots. As the politics of war become quite time consuming for Sarah, Abigail steps into the breach to fill in as the Queen's companion. Their burgeoning friendship gives her a chance to fulfill her ambitions and she will not let woman, man, politics or rabbit stand in her way.

Director: Yorgos Lanthimos

Cast: Olivia Colman, Emma Stone, Rachel Weisz, Nicholas Hoult

Strange Brew

Special Screening for Skagit Beer Week

Saturday, Mar 30, 7:30 pm

What matters most in life, eh? BEER! The Lincoln Theatre welcomes you to celebrate the end of SKAGIT BEER WEEK with a screening of the 1983 cult classic farce Strange Brew. Bring in your tickets from Farm to Pint Fest and receive $2 off our regular film prices!

Purporting to be loosely based on HamletStrange Brew is about an evil braumeister at the Elsinore Brewery who has discovered an additive that when guzzled in beer, allows the drinkers to be easily controlled. Braumeister Smith has a plan to take over the world with his new brew, and only the Great White hosers of the North, Bob and Doug McKenzie -- with their plaid shirts, ski toques, fur-lined parkas, and addiction to beer -- can stop the dastardly plan, sober or not. There are several jabs at "hoseheads" and the business of movie-making, including an epilogue that critiques the film itself.

Directors: Dave Thomas and Rick Moranis

Cast: Dave Thomas, Rick Moranis, Max von Sydow, Paul Dooley and Lynne Griffin

The Historic Lincoln Theatre presents

Ranky Tanky

Sunday, March 31, 2019 - 7:30pm

Ranky Tanky released their eponymous debut on Oct. 20th, 2017. By December of that year, the group had been been profiled on NPR’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross and their album soared to the #1 position on the Billboard, i-Tunes, and Amazon Jazz Charts.

“Gullah” comes from West African language and means “a people blessed by God.” “Ranky Tanky” translates loosely as “Work It,” or “Get Funky!” In this spirit this Charleston, SC based quintet performs timeless music of Gullah culture born in the southeastern Sea Island region of the United States. From playful game songs to ecstatic shouts, from heartbreaking spirituals to delicate lullabies, the musical roots of Charleston, SC are “rank” and fertile ground from which these contemporary artists are grateful to have grown.

Väsen

Friday, April 12, 2019 - 7:30pm

Three musicians (Olov Johansson, Roger Tallroth, Mikael Marin) with a singular sound, a playful yet accomplished interplay that seems to defy the laws of physics, an intensity with a great sense of humor, and modernity rooted in tradition. Väsen, a Swedish acoustic trio, now in its 27th year of touring together.

The parts: a five-string viola of sophisticated symphonic taste, an adventurous 12-string guitar, and a nyckelharpa (a “keyed fiddle”) deeply rooted in the traditions of Swedish folk music. All three are instrumental virtuosos in their own right, and together they form a unique supernatural being. To experience Väsen is to witness ensemble playing at its finest.

The band's origins are deeply rooted in the forests and rich earth of the Swedish countryside, in the centuries-old tradition of the folk music of Uppland. It's a tradition spiced with consummate playing skills. But this is more than just a traditional sound.

There's a playfulness to their music, a joyousness, and a delight in making exciting new arrangements of centuries-old tunes, and new originals inspired by the tradition. Rock, jazz, traditional, and classical influences weave together, making a music that's beautiful but never cloying. You always hear the inspiration and improvisation of the moment. And we can promise that you’ll never know what will happen next.

Monty Python's Life of Brian

Thursday, Apr 18, 7:30 pm

Returning to cinemas for it’s 40th Anniversary and just in time for Easter, in glorious standard definition and mono-sound, Monty Python delivers a scathing, anarchic satire of both religion and Hollywood's depiction of all things biblical with their 1979 feature film Life of Brian.

Highly controversial upon its original release and banned in several countries, the film is now frequently ranked as the greatest comedy feature of all time by magazines and media outlets around the world. As Monty Python member Terry Gilliam says, “It rips bare and makes you laugh at the world we’ve created for ourselves.”

Audiences will be able to join in the celebrations with a commemorative pack, available at cinema screenings on Thursday 18 April.

Set in 33 A.D. Judea, where exasperated Romans are trying to impose some order, it is a time of chaos and change with no shortage of messiahs and followers willing to believe in them. At its centre is Brian Cohen, a reluctant would-be messiah who rises to prominence as a result of a series of absurd circumstances providing ample opportunity for the entire Monty Python ensemble (Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin) to shine in multiple roles as they question everyone and everything from ex-lepers, Pontius Pilate and the art of haggling, to revolutionaries, crazy prophets, religious fanaticism, Roman centurions and crucifixion.

General Admission: $12; Lincoln Theatre Members $10 + applicable fees. Prices include a $1.50 preservation fee. Special Screening - No Passes.

National Theatre Live:

All About Eve

Sunday, Apr 28, 1:00 pm

Gillian Anderson (X-Files, NT Live: A Streetcar Named Desire) and Lily James (Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again) lead in All About Eve, broadcast live to cinemas from the West End in London.

All About Eve tells the story of Margo Channing. Legend. True star of the theatre. The spotlight is hers, always has been. But now there’s Eve. Her biggest fan. Young, beautiful Eve. The golden girl, the girl next door. But you know all about Eve…don’t you…?

Lifting the curtain on a world of jealousy and ambition, this new production, from one of the world's most innovative theatre directors, Ivo van Hove (Network, NT Live: A View from the Bridge), asks why our fascination with celebrity, youth and identity never seems to get old.

Asbury Park: Riot, Redemption, Rock 'N Roll

Wednesday, May 29, 7:30 pm

“Asbury Park: Riot, Redemption, Rock n Roll” tells the story of the long troubled town of Asbury Park, and how the power of music can unite a divided community. A once storied seaside resort, Asbury Park erupted in flames during a summer of civil unrest, crippling the town for the next 45 years and reducing it to a state of urban blight. A town literally divided by a set of railroad tracks, the riot destroyed the fabled Westside jazz and blues scene, but from the flames of the burning city emerged the iconic Jersey sound.

“Asbury Park” returns Asbury sons Steven Van Zandt, Southside Johnny Lyon and Bruce Springsteen to the legendary Upstage, the psychedelic after hours club where they got their start, featuring never before seen interviews and performances. Shuttered for four and a half decades, the Upstage remains a perfect time capsule of the Club which united both sides of the tracks in Asbury and acted as a crucible for young talent. Now, as Asbury Park enjoys its long awaited renaissance, it is music which has brought it back from the dead.

This major theatrical event will also include a bonus feature of never before seen footage, as Van Zandt, Southside Johnny, and Springsteen play a now legendary concert to a sold out Paramount Theater and trade guitar licks with the future of music in Asbury, a group of 11-year-old rockers who prove the best days for the town may just lie ahead.

The Big Lebowski Turns 21!

DudeStock 2019

Saturday, Jun 22, 7:00 pm

Our 9th annual DudeStock this year celebrates the 21st Anniversary of the greatest film ever made! At DudeStock we raise our Caucasians to all things related to the 1998 cult favorite. Fans of the film (aka "Achievers") come from far and wide to drink White Russians while partaking in the film, listening to Creedence and partying with an array of Dudes, Walters, Maudes and (hopefully) Jesus' to one of cinemas greatest achievements. Prizes will be awarded for best costume in several catergories, including a chance to win a comfy couch seat in the theatre for the show! Arrive early (doors at 7pm, film at 8pm) for Big Screen Bowling.

The plot of this Raymond Chandler-esque comedy crime caper from the Coen Brothers pivots around a case of mistaken identity complicated by extortion, double-crosses, deception, embezzlement, sex, pot, and gallons of White Russians. Jeff `The Dude' Leboswki is mistaken for Jeffrey Lebowski, who is The Big Lebowski. Which explains why he's roughed up and has his precious rug peed on. In search of recompense, The Dude tracks down his namesake, who offers him a job. His wife has been kidnapped and he needs a reliable bagman. Aided and hindered by his pals Walter Sobchak, a Vietnam vet, and Donny, master of stupidity. The soundtrack includes Bob Dylan, Yma Sumac, Moondog, Captain Beefheart, The Sons of the Pioneers and Creedence!

Directed by: Joel and Ethan Coen

Cast: Jeff Bridges, John Goodman, Steve Buscemi, Julianne Moore, David Huddleston, Peter Stormare, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Flea, Sam Elliott, Tara Reid, John Turturro, David Thewlis, Ben Gazzara, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, and Aimee Mann.

This film is a 21+ event. Sarsaparilla will be available if you choose not to imbibe.

Participation bags, full of cool what-have-yous, will be available at the door or as an add-on to your order for $10.
