Contributors Needed for Uptown Theatre Documentary

TORONTO, CANADA — I’m working on a student documentary paying homage to the Uptown Theatre, kind of a eulogy on film. I’m currently looking for anyone who has fond memories and stories to share about their experiences as a theater patron, volunteer, or employee. I am also looking for any video footage or still images of the Uptown both inside and out.
Unfortunately, I’m not able to offer any compensation for people’s stories or images but my hope is that with people’s contributions we can put together a fond remembrance and a heartfelt goodbye for the Uptown Theatre.
Anyone interested in contributing can email me at .
This weekend, I ran across a reference to an employee of the Uptown Theatre who was killed in action in WWII. It was in the 1945 issue of Film Daily Yearbook. It was on a full page of others who had died during the year 1944. This is a great reference tool. I got a 1945 and a 1965 issue off of Ebay. But, I’m sure you could locate any issue through your local library. They would probably have to acquire it for you through inter-library loan. But, that’s not difficult.. Ask your reference librarian. Good luck with your film.
