"You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger" - Uptown Theater Closes for Good Today

  • Uptown Theater

It is with great sadness that I read that the Uptown Theater will close forever on November 28 at the end of the business day after 84 years of operation:


I recall seeing movies like "Morgan" (Vanessa Redgrave's first major film), "2001" and other great films at this terrific venue. Some of the contemporary films that I saw here included: "Titanic Town" with an audience of about ten persons, "K-19 The Widow Maker", "Mic Macs", "Public Enemy".... and "A Film Unfinished" just a month or so ago..

We will be viewing the 4:30 showing of "You Will Meet a Tall, Dark Stranger" which is Woody Allen's latest film which isn't all that bad. We will be here to celebrate the closing of a much beloved movie theater and not Woody Allen so come to see one last film at the Uptown.

Meet me in theater's lobby at 4:15. I am an Asian male who wears glasses. I might remember to wear a beret or a black rain hat, but if I forget look for the guy who looks like he could be a member of the hair club for men. My cell phone,[masked], will be on until the program begins.

There will be an optional food and beverage stop after the film.

Good bye Uptown. George

    So sad to see this theatre close. I'm going to try to re-open it, though, dangit!

    Fun times. Thank you so much, George, for making me aware of this. The dream I've been brewing for the last few years apparently is now seeing the time for me to act on it. I'll be contacting the property owner tomorrow, to see what I can figure out. :)

    Enjoyed the movie, the light and darker humor, although the pervasiveness of deceit was often painful. Thoroughly loved the 'after' conversation at the Irish Pub. Thank you, George for (1) noticing that the Uptown was closing and (2) for setting this up quickly so that we could be there one last time (depending on Lendes :))
