Toronto’s Uptown Theater Closes Forever

posted by cirish on October 14, 2003 at 3:42 pm

On September 25 2003, just days after it was host to the Toronto International Film Fest, the Uptown closed its doors forever.

Open for over sixty years as a single screen theater and over thirty years as a three screen multiplex, the Uptown was a wonderful movie theater, with over 900 seats in the main theater and over 600 and 400 seats in 2nd and 3rd theaters, respectively.

I still remember when they closed the Backstage theater two years ago. The two had shared a backstage area, and one would enter the Backstage through the rear stage of the Uptown.

The Uptown will soon be demolished and turned into highrise condos. This great theater was a landmark for the people of Toronto and will be missed by all.
