Reviewed July 9, 2014

Our tour guide knew his business and answered all questions asked of him. The wines weren't bad either.

“Wonderful addition to the downtown scene”
Reviewed June 10, 2014

The Uptown Theatre is a great addition to Napa Downtown. The venue stars many big name entertainers in a comfortable and well appointed theater. The acoustics are very good and the floor plan allows for great viewing no matter where you sit.

“Not a Bad Seat in the House”
Reviewed June 6, 2014

Saw Gregg Allman at the Uptown. This is a majestically restored movie theatre, wide aisles and not a bad seat in the house. We ate before we went to the concert but really wished we hadn't. There is a Cafe in the theatre that is reasonably priced and looking at people's plates, it looked good. This venue actually Encourages drinking of available wines and beers throughout the theatre even in the seats...With a comfortable atmosphere, friendly staff and helpful ushers that are More than happy to share the history of the place with you....This Is The Spot! Coming from Santa Rosa, I certainly didn't mind the 1 hour drive each way... Largely reverse traffic on a week night was no problem, parking is Free on city streets and parking lots, plenty of places to dine and people watch within walking distance. Looking forward to seeing Winona here in July!

“Great Theatre ! Wonderful Talent ! Terrible Sound Board !”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

Wonderful venue... Great food and drink value. The sound board on Saturday did a terrible job. When a retired Music Professor made a suggestion to improve sound quality she was threatened with being thrown out by a wanna be biker looking thug. Cooler heads prevailed. An unfortunate stain on a wonderful weekend of music and entertainment.

Shelby F, Public Relations Manager at The Uptown Theatre, responded to this review, April 30, 2014
So sorry your show experience was tainted by your interaction regarding the sound. Unfortunately that evening the sound board was controlled by Los Lonely Boys sound engineers. We are very proud of our sound quality as evidenced by the many comments and reviews all favoring the sound quality at Uptown.. Even better yet, our sound staff are so highly desired, many artists choose to come to play at Uptown because of our quality and skilled staff. Most shows, the sound board is controlled by our staff because of their exemplary reputation in the industry, however Los Lonely Boys likes to manage their own board and are known for being quite loud.

Truly sorry that you must have spoken to someone who treated you with disrespect. We are confident that it was not one of our people as we treat all our patrons as guests in our home. If at any time you feel you are not being treated well by ANYONE at the theatre , please ask for security or the manager on duty. And we always have packages of earplug in the management office for patrons as well!

Thank you for being a patron of Uptown Theatre and we do hope that you come back again! We appreciate your business and comments.
