The Uptown Theater opened in 1969 as a single screen theater.

In 1990, the Uptown added 3 more screens and was renamed the Uptown Cinema Centre.

Cinema one has over 450 seats, while each of the other auditoriums have just over 100 seats.

Landmark Cinemas of Canada owns the Uptown. It was closed in June 2008.

The Uptown Cinema Centre is the least attractive theater in Red Deer. The showtimes are usually not convenient, their showtimes are approximately 30 minutes before other theaters. I have most often been late for a movie showing when I have gone there. If you wanted to go out for dinner and then to a movie, you would have to wait an hour for the late show, or miss 30 minutes of the movie. I went to X-Men there, and was waiting for friends when the film started 15 minutes before the time advertised, therefore all my friends missed a large part of the beginning. 9 out of 10 times if you dicide you want popcorn, the butter will simply make the popcorn into soggy un edible popcorn. I have always had to go back for a refund along wiht many people I know. It’s funny when you go there, because there is always someone returning their popcorn and getting it without butter, and where is the fun in that? I also have to add that for the past year and a half at least, the mens washroom has had the sick stench of urine. I am honestly not joking in any way about anything I am saying. Please feel free to inquire about this yourself. Is there anything else to add to this.. you would think not, but sadly there is. I think that enough has been said though. If youre looking for a good evening at the theater, I would definately not recommend the Uptown Cinema Center as a first choice.

Yeah…the last time I went to the Uptown was earlier this year and it seemed run-down. I recall seeing matinees there once in a while as a kid, and remember waiting in line-ups to see all of the Star Wars movies when they got reissued in 1997. I also remember seeing several films there with my dad in the summer of 1998.
