Lincoln Theatre At 711 Prairie St.

Highrise Tower

Recommended Posts

I was browsing The Houston Post dated February 23, 1924 and saw this movie listing for Lincoln Theatre located at 711 Prairie St.

Looking on Cinematreasures, this theater was awesome!

Opened in 1916 as a vaudeville theatre. It had a 20ft x 24ft stage, 18 sets of lines and two dressing rooms. By 1921 it was operated as an African-American movie & vaudeville theatre, operated by the Bijou Amusement Company.

It was demolished in 1977 and the site became a parking lot for the Houston Chronicle.
