The Uptown Theater was located in an old section of town that a busy highway has by-passed. It was accross the street from the now closed Magma Hotel which was built in the 1800’s.

The Uptown Theater had a tall vertical sign with the name almost faded away and a few pieces of broken neon holding on. The town sits at the base of some beautiful towering red cliffs.

The Uptown Theater was demolished in 2009.

The Uptown is actually just a shell. The auditorium roof caved in some time ago. The back wall of the theatre has been rebuilt but still no roof.

“Uptown Theater faces demolition as public safety hazard as owner’s appeal for more time denied.” Is there any way to save it?

You have to be there to fully appreciate this one.
