Greg Hannah sent us these shots of the Uptown Theatre on Sunday — just a day before yesterday’s fatal building collapse. (The wall that collapsed can be seen in the second image, at right. The school is also visible at far right.)
What a perfectly viable theatre gone. Look how nice it was, why not keep it?
I understand the whole idea of restoring thr city to protect our future by demolishing older buildings but gads… these photos are really depressing. I agree this theatre looked really. What was wrong with it?
Hey, is that a Ben Hur mural/movie ad painted on the side of that building? Also,what was the lay out of the screens?
