The Uptown is one of the last of the really big screen movie houses — The Last in this city — where the movie goer's experience is immersive and one can almost feel lost in the scene.

The only theater left with one gigantic screen, while others have been turned into multiplexes -- and this even has a balcony, where I think audiences get the best view. It's a great old-time theater, with a history of grand openings of first-run films.

Wouldn't know it was there but very accessible and great nearby options for dinner before or good concession options in house. Bathroom is a bit out of the way, so go before the show.

While not one of the old "glamour" cinemas, the Uptown is an excellent place to experience an old-school viewing of film. View first-run movies on a HUGE screen, either from not-terribly comfortable orchestra or balcony seating. Avg-good concessions are available.
