News About This Theater
- Mar 2, 2010 — Happy 45th, "The Sound Of Music"
Along with the former Majestic Theatre (better known as the Roxy Theatre), the Princess Theatre was one of the earlier legitimate theatres opened on Springfield’s 5th Street, in 1884, the same year as the Majestic Theatre.
Later, like the Majestic Theatre, the Princess Theatre switched to vaudeville, and after that, to movies.
By the 1920’s, it was renamed the Fox Theatre and was operated by Fox Midwest Theatres, and on November 29, 1928 it was renamed Lincoln Theatre and operated by the Frisina Amusement Co.
When it closed in 1976, the Lincoln Theatre had been screening adult fare for several years.
