Should the Lincoln Theater Become a Movie Theater Like the Avalon?

Avalon Theater located at 5612 Connecticut Ave, NW

Last week we spoke about the possibility that the Lincoln Theater could close at 1215 U Street NW. When I was up in Chevy Chase last Sunday I couldn’t get over how much the Avalon movie theater reminded me of the Lincoln Theater and I thought, man it would be sweet if the Lincoln showed films like the Avalon. But perhaps it’s not possible to put two movie screens in the Lincoln? Would it not be viable with only one screen? Maybe consider some sorta public/private partnership? Do you think a set up like the Avalon would be successful/possible at the Lincoln? Perhaps I’m being naive but I think the Lincoln as a movie theater would be a phenomenal addition to the neighborhood.
