Was this theater being used by a community theater group in 1963-64? I recall seeing a live production then in a former movie theater downtown.

The new “Transformers” movie prominently features the Uptown at the beginning of the film. The only thing is, that it has been moved to a small town in Texas. There are shots in the lobby and auditorium, as well as the projection room.

Now known as Superior Value Cinema, because it is a 2nd-run house. Most likely due to the proximity of the first-run Duluth Cinema in the Canal Park section of downtown Duluth.

Trolleyguy commented about Tiny Texas movie theater asks for help to convert on May 24, 2014 at 6:46 am

The news article mentions that they will also be installing a new screen and making overall improvements to the location. That can eat up a lot of money very quickly.

Trolleyguy commented about Patio Theatre on May 6, 2014 at 6:09 am

In this part of the city, the trend has been to take major intersection corner properties and convert them to either Walgreens or CVS stores. Maybe the Patio owner has been offered a deal to good to refuse?
