Our Mission

The Lincoln Theatre is a cinema and performing arts space in downtown Bessemer, Ala. Built in 1948 to show first-run movies for African American audiences, the Lincoln is the last remaining historic theatre in the Marvel City. The mission of the Lincoln is to preserve, promote, present and celebrate diverse cultures with special emphasis on African American cultural heritage.
