Shuttered since 1981, the Uptown Theatre means so much to the people of Uptown and Chicago. Its restoration and reuse would bring jobs and make a positive economic impact on the neighborhood and Chicago.
“At some point, these projects have to become someone’s priority,” added Andy Pierce from Friend of Uptown Theatre. “The Uptown Theatre is one of our great landmarks and we’re looking for a solution.” (LaTrace, 8/22/17)
