Cheyenne Residents Share Their First Lincoln Theater Memories
When Cheyenne's legendary Lincoln Theater played its last picture show in 2018, we asked our Facebook friends to share their first memories from the Lincoln.
Here are a few of our favorite responses:
Bonnie Reider: My first ever movie theater experience - Goldfinger - - It cost 25 cents for a ticket in 1964! I think popcorn was 5 cents!
Marty Luna: The summer movie series was at the WYO. With empty fruit drink cartons from Dairy Gold, you got a free ride! Did I just date myself?
Tim Adams: Star Wars in 1977.
Denise Ken Fisher: The Original Planet of The Apes.
Rick Carlson: 1958, just moved to Cheyenne. Double feature, The Blob and I Married A Monster From Outer Space.
Gwen VC: Willie Wonka & The Chocolate Factory.
Andrew Tauchen: I saw Twister there half a dozen times in 5th grade.
Nick Sconiers: The first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie was mine, still remember going to see that movie at the Lincoln.
Judy Kishman: "Fantasia" was my first movie there. My first date was "Goldfinger". And I don't need to be reminded that those movies are older than you, so so am I.
Along with movies, some people remember seeing concerts at the Lincoln.
Rick Phillips: First time I went to the Lincoln theater was for a Battle of the Bands in '87.
Others will remember the Lincoln for different reasons.
Vanessa Wells: My cousin was smoking a cigarette and lit her hair on fire.
We're gonna guess that probably happened sometime in the late '80s.
