Lincoln Theater, Decatur Il
April 19, 2013
On April 2, students from the Lanphier Paranormal Club visited Lincoln Theater in Decatur for a 4 hour investigation. These are some photos from the evening. The theater is considered by many to be one of the most haunted locations in the U.S.!
Thanks John, Adam and Jake and of course Lincoln Theater!

Students who braved the investigation!
John Winterbauer was gracious enough to get the students into the Lincoln Theater, and entertained them with stories from the Lincoln!
Hosts Adam White, and Jake Bonnet give a history of the historic theater, as well as a few haunting stories!
The Theater main floor seating area.
We do not push orbs as evidence, but there were several very bright and interesting ones on this evening, as you can see!
Two very bright orbs in this photo and we have not figured out the person on the left with the gray shirt! The orbs are perfectly round, you can compare them to the flashlights which have a different shape.
This photo is a closeup of the above photo with the person in the gray.

Face Orb! This is in no way being claimed to be paranormal but it is certainly a cool picture! Looks like a face in this interestingly colored orb near the ceiling of the theater.
Trish and Tracey doing a sb-7 spirit box session with Chansy, Amber, and Brittany in the active basement dressing room. They are also using EMF detectors, audio recorders, and cameras.
Tayllor is spooked by something and is running from a spot. She was in the basement with Mr. Roberts and Corey who can attest to her reaction. She felt something was right behind her.
