Opened in 1917 as the Kimmel Theatre (replacing an earlier Kimmel Theatre [1911-1917] a few doors down 8th Street). The theatre was renamed the Jackson Theatre in 1932 and at the end of 1936, again renamed the Rodgers Theatre. Later in the 1950’s, the theatre was once more renamed, this time as the Lincoln Theatre. It continued to operate until the late-1960’s. The building is now home to Cairo’s Elks club.
