I don’t think it’s government intrusion. Look at the back of any food package you might purchase and you’ll see the same thing spelled out. Those of us who have diabetes and other health issues welcome this kind of disclosure.
That seems to be the case. Try this link and type in “Uptown” in the search box.
A 1960 view of the Uptown can be seen to the right here:

According to this article, once renovation has been made to the nearby Movies 10 complex, this theater will be closed.
The Crest is currently for sale.
I don’t think so. There was a landscaping crew working on the grounds the day I took the pictures. The theaters and the Taco Bell restaurant that sits at the front of the property on the highway share a driveway and grounds maintenance.
The grant funds being sought for re-opening are not necessarily a sure thing, as this article points out.

The Tower Theater complex is for sale:
This theater was recently shown on HGTV when they announced their Dream Home winner who lives in Scotia.
