Postscript: Uptown Theater

Last week, I shared a post about the long-dormant Uptown Theater, and what its long-planned renaissance would mean to that neighborhood.

Some photos from a recent Chicago magazine feature by photographer Eric Holubow show the current state of the Uptown. You can see those photos here (the first 7 or so) along with other abandoned movie houses in the area.

These theaters constitute several thousand square feet of valuable resources that are already standing. It seems like a no-brainer to use that space – and not tear these gems down to build a McPlaza.
