The Lincoln opened November 23, 1915, as the largest and finest movie theatre in Ohio. The Massillon Lions Club agreed to take on the project of restoring and then operating the historic theatre in 1982. Over half a million dollars was raised for the project by the Massillon Lions Club over the next few years. When the theatre was reopened in 1983 all work was performed by Massillon Lions and their family and friends.
Today the theatre is currently self-sustaining thanks to Susan Stuck, our current executive director, and Lions Club volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering or supporting our community treasure, go to the Theatre’s website: https://lionslincolntheatre.org/
