DocSouth’s “Going to the Show” lists the Lincoln Theatre as having been open by 1924. It lists the house as having had 300 seats in 1926 and 850 seats in 1930. As that’s a considerable expansion, I’m thinking it might have been done by adding one or two levels of balcony seating to a single-floor auditorium. Closing the upper balcony could then account for a later reduction to 640 seats.
