3. The Uptown Theater

The Uptown Theater is one of the least historically documented theaters in the area. It seems to have been designed by George M. Pollard and opened either in 1920 or 1926. It stayed open for almost forty years before being converted into a retail location. The lobby space is currently occupied by a Gristede’s supermarket and it is possible that some of the original details remain hidden above the current drop ceiling or behind the walls or ceilings of the other retail stores that occupy the theater’s former auditorium.
