Lincoln Cinema opens doors

Lincoln Cinema has opened its doors to the public once more after closing for a month to undergo renovations. 

The freshly painted cinema now boasts a new cafe area, a kid's hangout, and cosmetic updates to the interior of the building, with a black and white theme. 

Cinema owner Angela Perin said she was grateful for the people that came to the opening weekend. 

"It was amazing, we were really well supported by the community, all the screenings went quite well and we were very busy," she said. 

"There were a few glitches on the way...but all the feedback was that the place was nice and open, a lot of people said it looked clean and fresh.

"People said it even looked a little bit retro...maybe it looks a bit art-deco." 

Ms Perin said they averaged 200 to 250 people a day through the cinema over the weekend.

The cinema was closed for five weeks from the end of January for renovations, estimated to have cost about $50,000. 

Part of the cost includes new seating to be installed in the front portion of the main seating area, which Ms Perin estimates will be installed just after the school holidays. 

She said she intends to get internet at the cinema fixed so the system can run smoothly. 

"Once that's settled, we want to offer free wifi to young people as well, and potentially run some other events," she said. 

She said murder mystery nights could be held at the cinema in future, as well as disability screenings, and events for 'mums and bubs' groups and senior citizens.
