On Tuesday, February 26 the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities (DCCAH) will host a facilitated discussion on the future of the Lincoln Theatre.

This meeting comes after DCCAH announced in December 2012 that it will put the historic U Street theatre up for lease after its long struggle to maintain an owner and turn a profit.

Next Tuesday’s discussion will include a public feedback session, which will help drive the process of selecting the new commercial operator to manage the theatre.

Originally, the meeting was scheduled to be held at the DCCAH office in SE DC, but after push-back and complaints from the community’s residents, the meeting location was changed to the Lincoln Theatre at 1215 U Street NW.

The meeting will take place from 6 to 8 pm and is open to the public. For more information, visit the Eventbrite page.
