Uptown Theater

It's pretty obvious that I have a nostalgia problem. But I'm also prone to extreme fits of thirst for historical knowledge.

Today I read that the Uptown Theater is being sold at a foreclosure auction on Tuesday. This could be a very good thing, or a very bad thing.

I really hope someone buys it that wants to restore the theater and open it again for movies, plays, concerts. Some kind of theatrical epicenter. But it might be more likely that someone who wants to tear it down and put a Best Western there will buy it.

I guess we could find out soon. In the meantime I had checked out a book of pictures from the library of Uptown's gentrification/historical places where I found these great pictures of the theater.
