Lincoln Theater on U Street NW. (Luis Gomez Photos)

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.

Spike Lee will be recognized at the Lincoln Theater this Saturday, June 4 from 6:30 pm to 9 pm. Tickets are $28.50. The Hung Tai Choy Mei Leadership Institute, a non-profit organization that focuses on leadership development for D.C.’s youth, will present Lee with the 2011 Paul Robeson, “Here I Stand” award. “By participating in the Leadership Institute’s programs and attending the Institute’s classes, students develop life-enhancing skills along with positive values, a sense of purpose and direction, and a commitment to progressive community development.” (Hung Tai Choi Mei)

Lee’s award ceremony will also stand alongside special performances by Urban Artistry, Hung Tao Choy Mei “Lucky Lions and Thunder Drummers,” International Martial Arts sensation Olivia Zhang and harmonicist Frederic Yonnet.

This weekend is also your last chance to catch Green Bird, at The Source. “This commedia dell’arte fantasia involves a lovesick king, a greedy fortune teller, an insatiable sausage-maker, a seductive statue and a magical green bird. This vibrant world combines philosophical ideas about truth, love, sacrifice and compassion with inventive physical comedy and Tom Teasley’s sensational live music.” (Source)
