We watched a movie here last night it was $30 total for a family of 6 movie tickets plus a large popcorn, large drink and a candy to share. The movie theatre has a lot of old charm to it. Not super crowded. I recommend it and we will be back!

We stayed at the Plains Hotel, right across the street. After a walk, had to time to do something - Oh, look! A movie theater. Yeah let's do it. I checked prices. About $9 total for the 3 of us. What a deal. Older movie, but I hadn't seen it yet. After movie, walked across the street to the Plains,... More

We went to see a pretty new release, and yet the big theater was empty save for two or three other people. It is very old and dated, and as I was sitting there waiting for the film to start, I started thinking about how this must be terrible business for them and how some new covers for the seats...

The Lincoln Theater was one of three movie houses downtown. The Lincoln is the only that remains. It was converted into two screens with the balcony now the smaller theater. It now is a second run theater and basically they want you to go in for nearly free and buy popcorn and pop. I've rented the place for some screenings... More

I will not be attending this theater again. I had a water bottle on the outside of my purse and the person working said I couldn’t bring it in okay that’s fine. I’ve been walking around all day so yes I had it with me. But then he asked me to open my purse???? I could understand if I was... More

This is a cute old-fashioned theater. They offer movies at a much lower price than other cinemas in town, however it is a chilly few hours to sit in the old building. Enjoyable, but grab a extra sweater.

Enjoyed a great movie in a classic old theater. Wonderful decor and comfortable seating. Situated right in the middle of downtown with easy access from anywhere. Not much parking, but nice parking lot one block away.

A nice classic movie theatre! It is a great place to take in a movie! You have to wait for the movie to come around, but because this place doesn't go for the new releases the cost of going is way reasonable!! Great popcorn too!!

$3 admission per person, great concessions and fun staff. Totally worth a visit! If you don't get there early, though, gotta park a couple blocks over as it is downtown Cheyenne and not much parking out front.
