Aside, to SethLewis: Yenching Palace! That Chinese place was great. I was so sad when that closed and became a Walgreens. They had the best neon sign.
Oh no. I just heard the news — Not only is my treasured Seattle Cinerama closing, but my beloved Uptown? I went there often, when I lived in the DC suburbs, for almost twenty years, 1994–2013. It was the theatre that really kindled my love for grand cinematic experiences. Rest in peace, friend.
I’m glad I got to live here in Seattle while it was open, since I moved here in 2013. I never saw anything on the deep curved Cinerama screen (afaik still installed behind the modern, less-curved screen), but I’m grateful for all of the films I got to see there, including 2001. I hope someone steps in to rescue it.
