Marcus Theatres owns all of Lincoln's first-run theaters outside of downtown. Shown is the Grand multiplex at 12th and P streets.

Several local civic organizations have planned a “Reunite Lincoln” event on Wednesday at the downtown Marcus Grand Cinema for Lincoln to celebrate the reopening of the city now that pandemic restrictions have been lifted.

 “I am so proud of our community,” said Lincoln City Councilman Tom Beckius. “It’s time to reunite and celebrate the strength of our city. I hope Lincolnites from all corners of our community join us downtown for this exciting event.”

The Downtown Lincoln Association, Lincoln Chamber of Commerce, Lincoln Convention and Visitors Bureau and Lincoln Young Professionals Group are sponsoring the event, which will begin at 6 p.m.

The event will feature a welcome from Mayor Leirion Gaylor Baird and comments from Marcus Theatre CEO Greg Marcus. Attendees can watch “Back to the Future” or “In the Heights” for free on the big screen, courtesy of the Marcus Theatres team. Food and cocktails will also be available to purchase.

Reunite Lincoln is the flagship event of a campaign to rediscover everything Lincoln has to offer, and encourage residents to continue supporting local businesses.

“The Lincoln community has demonstrated its resilience throughout the first half of the year and this event is a positive sign of great things to come,” said Jeff Maul, executive director of the Lincoln Convention and Visitors Bureau. “It is time to celebrate the hard work of our community, which has positioned us months ahead of where we anticipated we would be. It’s a truly exciting time for Lincoln.”
