Maiden

Saturday, Aug 24, 7:30 pm
Sunday, Aug 25, 5:30 pm
Monday, Aug 26, 7:30 pm

Maiden is the story of how Tracy Edwards, a 24-year-old cook in charter boats, became the skipper of the first-ever all-female crew to enter the Whitbread Round the World in 1989. Tracy's inspirational dream was opposed on all sides: her male competitors thought an all-women crew would never make it, the chauvinistic yachting press took bets on her failure, and potential sponsors rejected her, fearing they would die at sea and generate bad publicity. But Tracy refused to give up: she remortgaged her home and bought a secondhand boat, putting everything on the line to ensure the team made it to the start line. Although blessed with tremendous self-belief Tracy was also beset by crippling doubts and was only able to make it through with the support of her remarkable crew. With their help, she went on to shock the sports world and prove that women are very much the equal of men.

Director: Alex Holmes

Cast: Tracy Edwards

"Enthralling viewing even for audiences with little to no knowledge of or interest in sailing, Maiden pays powerful tribute to a true pioneer." - Certified Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes

The Sky Colony Album Release

Featuring Funeral Dove

Friday, August 30 at 7:30pm

The Sky Colony are an indie folk rock group focused on what matters most to them: simply creating wholesome music, and more importantly, their intention behind doing so. Since their formation in 2012, the story behind the lyrics of their 1960’s reminiscent sound has organically grown into one of personal empowerment, discovery, and awareness. Authentic and heartfelt lyrics, intricate tonal harmonies, catchy hooks, and interesting leads are what you’ll hear of this group from Skagit Valley, Washington.

In 2019, their second full-length album, “All of Us”, is to be released. Recorded by Pacific Northwest studio master Michael Iris in the Cascade foothills’ Bell Creek Studio, featuring a smattering of skillful musicians and friends from the area, the record is a true call out to the band’s influential roots. “It’s our response to both not releasing anything for a while, and how much everything has changed since then.” The band's leader, Kyle Findley-Meier, says. “All of us know how important this project is in our lives, seeing what art can do to inspire us to come together in strange times of adversity. It’s our homage to the music that inspired us the most from the 60’s, when rapid social change led by art was happening, just as it is now.”

Funeral Dove is Miranda Zickler and Jillian Walker of Seattle pop folk band Kuinka. Having formed after years on the road together, they use guitar, cello, and haunting vocals weaving in and out of harmony to mix original songs with dressed-down 90s nostalgia. They can sometimes be found busking at Pike Place Market with tambourines strapped to their feet. Funeral Dove is a pair of friendly ghosts in your hallway, haunting you warmly, often with songs you know by heart.

Margaret Atwood: Live in Cinemas

September 10 at 7:30pm

On Tuesday September 10th, the wait will be over…The Testaments, Margaret Atwood’s highly anticipated sequel to The Handmaid's Tale, will be revealed. The momentous literary event will be celebrated with an exclusive live cinema broadcast, as Fane Productions present an evening with the Canadian novelist, poet, literary critic and inventor.

The publication of Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale in 1985 and the current, Emmy Award-winning television series have created a cultural phenomenon, as handmaids have become a symbol of women’s rights and a protest against misogyny and oppression. Filmed live from the stage of the National Theatre in London, Atwood will be interviewed by broadcaster and author Samira Ahmed in a conversation spanning the length of Atwood’s remarkable career, her diverse range of works, and why she has returned to her seminal handmaid story, 34 years later.

‘I am delighted that the launch of The Testaments will take place not only in London on 10th September, but also by live-streaming to over 1000 cinemas around the world. I can’t be in all the places at once in my analogue body, but I look forward to being with so many readers via the big screen.’ Margaret Atwood

With exclusive readings from the new book by special guests, this will be an unmissable and intimate event with Atwood, spotlighting her signature insight, humour and intellect.

Women’s rights, female empowerment and resistance are at the core of Atwood’s story and the events are presented in partnership with Equality Now.

Village Books will be at the Lincoln this evening so you can purchase a copy of The Testaments on the day of its release. It will also be available to pre-order with your ticket order for a discounted price.

Willy Wonka in Smell-O-Vision

Saturday, Sep 14, 3:00 pm
Sunday, Sep 15, 3:00 pm

Join the Lincoln Theatre and Forte Chocolates as we present our fifth annual screening of the 1971 family musical Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory in Smell-O-Vision!

Feast your eyes on the classic film inspired by Roald Dahl's book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and treat your taste buds to delicious treats in Forte's Smell-O-Vision bags available for purchase for $5. You’ll find delicious chocolates, scrumptious lollypops, edible wallpaper, bubble gum, everlasting gobstoppers, and more! Plus: GoldenTicket Bars with a chance to win free chocolate for a year!

What is Smell-O-Vision? you might ask. Smell-O-Vision was a system that released odor during the projection of a film so that the viewer could "smell" what was happening in the movie. The technique was created by Hans Laube and made its only appearance in the 1959 film Scent of Mystery. The staff of the Lincoln Theatre has recreating that failed attempt for this screening!

Sing a long with Willy Wonka, Charlie Bucket and Grandpa Joe, as the last of five coveted "golden tickets" falls into the hands of a sweet but very poor boy. He and his grandpa then get a tour of the strangest chocolate factory in the world. The owner leads five young winners, Augustus Gloop, Violet Beauregarde, Veruca Salt, Mike Teavee, Arthur Slugworth on a thrilling and often dangerous tour of his factory.

"Probably the best film of its sort since The Wizard of Oz. It is everything that family movies usually claim to be, but aren't: Delightful, funny, scary, exciting, and, most of all, a genuine work of imagination." Roger Ebert - Chicago Sun-Times

★★★★★
'Witty, filthy and supreme.' Guardian

See the hilarious, award-winning, one-woman show that inspired the BBC’s hit TV series Fleabag, broadcast live to the Lincoln from London’s West End.

Written and performed by Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag, Killing Eve) and directed by Vicky Jones, Fleabag is a rip-roaring look at some sort of woman living her sort of life.

Fleabag may seem oversexed, emotionally unfiltered and self-obsessed, but that's just the tip of the iceberg. With family and friendships under strain and a guinea pig café struggling to keep afloat, Fleabag suddenly finds herself with nothing to lose.

Playing to sold-out audiences in New York and London, don’t miss your chance to see this ‘legitimately hilarious show’ (New Yorker), broadcast live to the Lincoln.

Los Lobos

45th Anninversary Tour

Los Lobos is embarking on their tour celebrating 45 years of high quality American music - thank you to all of our fans who have supported us and continue to turn out! These shows feature an acoustic set followed by an electric set that covers music from the last 5 decades.

“We’re a Mexican American band, and no word describes America like immigrant. Most of us are children of immigrants, so it’s perhaps natural that the songs we create celebrate America in this way.” So says Louie Perez, the “poet laureate” and primary wordsmith of Los Lobos.

Back in 2003, when Los Lobos was celebrating the 30th Anniversary of their humble beginnings as a garage band in East L.A., Rolling Stone summed up their distinctive, diverse, freewheeling fusion of rock, blues, soul and Mexican folk music: “This is what happens when five guys create a magical sound, then stick together…to see how far it can take them.” Originally called Los Lobos del Este (de Los Angeles), a play on a popular norteno band called Los Lobos del Norte, the group originally came together from three separate units. Lead vocalist/guitarist Hidalgo, whose arsenal includes accordion, percussion, bass, keyboards, melodic, drums, violin and banjo, met Perez at Garfield High in East LA and started a garage band. Rosas, who had his own group, and Lozano launched a power trio. “But we all hung out because we were friends and making music was just the natural progression of things,” says Perez, the band’s drummer. “Like if you hang around a barbershop long enough, you’re going to get a haircut.”

Perez, once called their powerhouse mix of rock, Tex-Mex, country, folk, R&B, blues and traditional Spanish and Mexican music “the soundtrack of the barrio.” Three decades, two more Grammys, the global success of “La Bamba” and thousands of rollicking performances across the globe later, Los Lobos is surviving quite well -- and still jamming with the same raw intensity as they had when they began in that garage in 1973.

Burnin' in Mount Vernon III

with

Eric Heatherly and the Chris Eger Band

returns to The Historic Lincoln Theatre on

Saturday, October 12, 2019 - 7:30pm

Two guitarslingers duel it out in a sequel to what was called by many as one of the best nights of 2018! Dubbed "Burnin' in Mount Vernon," this show promises to be bigger, better and once again a night long remembered. New songs, raffle giveaways and of course a show like only these guys can give!

A native of Chattanooga, Tennessee, Eric had paid his dues playing nightly for meager tips at Tootsie's Orchid Lounge on Broadway in Nashville. Shania Twain was sufficiently impressed with his chops to hire Heatherly to play lead guitar for her first world tour and to appear with her on the 1997 Country Music Association awards show. His years of dedicated effort were rewarded with a major label deal with Mercury Records that included a cover of The Statler Brothers' "Flowers on the Wall", the first of three singles from his debut album Swimming in Champagne, His take on country with a surf-rock feel found its way to radio and TV, showing up on CMT, “Austin City Limits,” and “Grey's Anatomy.” Other laurels include receiving Music Row Magazine’s "Critic's Pick" award and being named in Playgirl Magazine as “sexiest singer.”

CEB is led by guitarist/vocalist Chris Eger, whose funky, blues guitar work and powerful tenor vocals are sure to excite. Eger is backed by bassist and father Randall Eger, who has over 35 years of live performance experience. Drummer, Mark Clark, is a veteran of the Northwest music scene, playing with the likes of the New Deal Rhythm Band and the Chryslers. Clark brings a solid, funky foundation to the group. Rick Jiles, keyboardist and leader of the local favorites "Midlife Crisis & the Alimony Horns," is a tasteful and scintillating addition to the rhythm section. Finally, Pete Kirkman and Mike West lend their talents as the noteworthy and eponymous Powerhouse Horns.

The evening will include The Record Store Troubadours; Special set by Eric and Lindsey Heatherly. Newly married and on the road with their new project the Record Store Troubadours.

The Second City Greatest Hits Vol. 59

Tuesday, October 22, 2019 - 7:30pm

It all started with children’s games.

Rooted in the groundbreaking improvisational games of Viola Spolin, The Second City opened its doors on a snowy Chicago night in December of 1959, and a comedy revolution began. The small cabaret theater has grown to become the most influential and prolific comedy empire in the world, developing an entirely unique way of creating art and fostering generation after generation of superstars.

Co-founded by Spolin’s son, Paul Sills, along with Howard Alk and Bernie Sahlins, The Second City was experimental and unconventional in its approach to both theater and comedy. Almost immediately, alumni of The Second City, including Alan Arkin, Joan Rivers, Fred Willard, Gilda Radner, Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi, launched the theater into the international spotlight.

In 1976, Second City launched “SCTV,” which has been hailed as one of the greatest sketch comedy series of all time. The two-time Emmy winner featured an all-star cast made up of Martin Short, Andrea Martin, Catherine O’Hara, John Candy, Eugene Levy, Dave Thomas, Joe Flaherty, and Rick Moranis.

Today, The Second City is home to a world-class entertainment company, continuing to produce premier talent in all three of its locations--Chicago, Toronto, and Hollywood--and entertaining more than one million audience members a year. From Steve Carell to Keegan-Michael Key, Stephen Colbert to Tina Fey, Chris Farley to Mike Myers, Second City’s imprint is all over film, television, and beyond.

Walter Trout

Saturday, December 7, 2019 - 8:00pm

Over the course of the last several decades, Walter Trout has been a prolific artist. He’s regularly released offerings from the studio, so this moment of offering a new covers album, Survivor's Blues, is somewhat of a curveball. His 2017 all-star release, We’re All In This Together, shows no sign of burning out and continues to receive accolades and sales on a global basis, alongside four awards for Blues Rock Album Of The Year. He reflects, ”It’s really overwhelming. How do I follow that up? I’ve always respected guys who went out on a limb, like Neil Young or Bob Dylan. You never know what they’re gonna come out with.”

All they needed was a title. And as Trout surveyed his bloodied-but-unbowed cohorts – and reflected on a collection of blues songs whose raw power remained undimmed – he knew the suggestion of his wife and manager, Marie, couldn’t be topped. “We started thinking about these enduring songs and the guys playing on the album,” he reflects. “Mike is in recovery. Johnny almost didn’t make it. Skip has had a triple bypass. And I almost didn’t make it after my liver disease in 2014. So Marie said to me, ‘You’re a group of survivors. You’ve all been through hell and you’ve come back. These songs are survivors. This album needs to be called Survivor Blues’. I just looked at her and said: ‘You got it’.”

National Theatre Live

All My Sons

by Arthur Miller
directed by Jeremy Herrin

Sunday, Jan 19, 1:00 pm

Broadcast live from The Old Vic in London, Academy Award-winner Sally Field (Steel Magnolias, Brothers & Sisters) and Bill Pullman (The Sinner, Independence Day) star in Arthur Miller’s blistering drama All My Sons.

America, 1947. Despite hard choices and even harder knocks, Joe and Kate Keller are a success story. They have built a home, raised two sons and established a thriving business.

But nothing lasts forever and their contented lives, already shadowed by the loss of their eldest boy to war, are about to shatter. With the return of a figure from the past, long buried truths are forced to the surface and the price of their American dream is laid bare.

Jeremy Herrin (NT Live: This House, People, Places & Things) directs a cast including Jenna Coleman (Victoria), and Colin Morgan (Merlin).

All My Sons is an Old Vic co-production with Headlong
