AMC to shutter historic Uptown Cinemas in Seattle

SEATTLE, WA — AMC will close another theater claiming that its continued operation is not economically viable, only this time it is the eighty-four-year-old Uptown on Seattle’s Queen Anne Avenue. Most recently operated as a triplex, the theater opened in 1926. The last day will be November 28.
The brief announcement is at King5.com.

Would make a great Landmark Theatre. Or… Regency, want to move into Seattle?
I’ve actually had dreams of taking this place over since AMC did — as I felt in went downhill since then, and also I just have dreams of things it could be… I wonder if this means I’m too late? Hope not!

Does anyone know if the theatre is turn-key or did AMC take all the equipment with them?
