I just realized the Uptown got demolished. All the theaters in town were owned by the same company. When they were closed one at a time, they had deed restrictions placed on them to keep them from operating as movie theaters. This happened to the Ritz and also to the Uptown. I had inquired before the night club went in ad it wasn’t being sold as a movie theater.

It sucks honestly that we allow our historic building to be discarded and allow these restrictions to be placed on them.

Visited Rolla over the weekend and the building had just been torn down and the lot cleaned up(or so it seemed). A shame.

It went up for sale a few years ago while I was in college there. Had I been able to pull together the funds, it might still be a working theaters (instead of the night club with a sloped floor that it became…)

This building & the neighboring one were recently acquired by the Missouri S&T Alumni Association. They plan to tear it down in order to build a new alumni center. We need your help! The building is structurally fine, and would be an undertaking to renovate it, but still cheaper than building a new one, and you can keep the cool art deco historical building. To show your support, and help us out: write/email Miner Alumni Association

Tell them to be creative & re-use the existing structure!
