V4C: The Lincoln Theatre’s Architecture and Décor

COLUMBUS (WCMH) — The Lincoln Theatre was one of ten theatres in the country originally designed in Egyptian revival  motif.

The huge columns, walls and even the carpeting display the signature Egyptian hieroglyphics characters of rivers and pyramids. The logo of the theatre which is the Isis symbol.

Even the aisle caps for the seats have been re-cast by a company in Cincinnati.  They had the original casting which match how they looked back in the 1920’s.

The ceiling was stenciled and hand painted to give it an authentic look. Some of the chairs have been dedicated with small plaques by the community in memory of friends and family members, helping to show a sense of pride in what the theatre has now become.
