Milwaukee, Wisconsin, The Lincoln Theater, c1917

The Lincoln Theater, described as a photoplay parlor, was built during an era when nickelodeons reigned. While the nickelodeon was generally set up in converted storefront, the Lincoln Theater was specifically built for showing films. It has a simpler fa´┐Żade than the often-gaudy nickelodeons and its design was distinguished from more traditional theaters by the lack of a stage house into which scenery and curtains were raised.
