The Uptown Theatre can be partly seen in this photo of a 1961 parade.

This item from the “Theater Construction” column of the May 31, 1938, issue of The Film Daily must have been about the Uptown Theatre:

“Sonora — New, 800 seats, Downtown Sonora; Builder: Harvey Amusement Co.; Cost: $50,000; Operator: Harvey Amusement Co.”
An item in the June, 1938, issue of The Architect & Engineer of California said that Frederick W. Quandt had drawn the plans for a theater being built at Sonora, California, for the Harvey Amusement Company.

Thanks maybe i read the ad wrong.I did see an ANGELS CAMP THEATRE in that city,but i thought it might have been the Uptown Theatre renamed like so many are during the years of operation,Chuck 1231. So i did not want to submit it.
