History comes to life inside Belleville's Lincoln Theatre.

"The Lincoln is a 1921 Vaudeville House so the Marx brothers played here Ginger Rogers danced on the stage," said Dave Schoenborn, Lincoln Theatre owner.

The Lincoln has has been in continuous operation ever since.

"Here on Friday night there will be applause and I'll know the movies," said Schoenborn.

David Stephens has been playing the organ for guests since 1996.

"It's a real theatre pipe organ," said David Stephens, organist.

Even though the owners keep the theaters history alive, they keep up with the times by playing current movies with the latest technology. Lincoln Theatre is also known for it's homemade gourmet popcorn.

"It's just the care that we put into it the formula the salt things like that. We took that to a different level with the gourmet popcorn. We have carmel corn that we make from scratch cheese corn our own recipes," explained Schoenborn.
