Oct. 5th’s Friday Question of the Day asked, Should the Lincoln Theater become a Movie Theater Like the Avalon? Lot of people said yes.
From a Mayor’s media advisory:
Beginning January 1, 2012, oversight of the Lincoln Theatre [1215 U St, NW] will transfer from the U Street Theatre Foundation (USTF) to the D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities. Oversight will include hiring a new executive director and developing a long-term sustainable business model for the historic U Street theatre.
A four-week partnership with Landmark Theatres is one of the first ventures the District will bring to the Lincoln Theatre with the release of the major motion picture, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, by Columbia Pictures on Wednesday, December 21.
