The Uptown Theatre was opened August 17, 1928 with Clara Bow in “My Lady of Whims”. It was designed in a Spanish Moorish style and was equipped with a Victor Reuter organ which was opened by organist Paul Kinard.
The main entrance door on the corner has now been bricked in and the tiles around the building have been removed. They kept the arch designs around the door and window. You would not be able to tell that this was once a theatre. Entrance to this parish hall is on the side of the building today.
I viewed inside when the door was open one day and saw beautiful Spanish tile inside the entrance and around the walls, but I don’t know if this was part of the theatre when it was open.
The Uptown Theatre was still open in 1952 but had closed by 1955.
