They play DVD's for their "film festivals" and any time they do something special like play a classic film it's on DVD. Pretty sure they weren't legal broadcast copies either but ones people that either heading up the events or work there just brought in. Sorry but if you can't be bothered to even get films on 35mm like the Capitol in Rome you deserve to lose business. And it's not like the Capitol has that much more money yet it fills because people love classic films on actual film not sitting in shitty half renovated tiny theaters to watch a dvd on a cheap projector. Not to mention I payed more to see Star Wars on dvd at the uptown than I did to watch Godzilla Versus Mothra on 35mm in Rome. Terrible business practices. Perhaps we'll get lucky and a proper theater company or maybe a performance company will take it over.
Owner on WKTV making a big deal out of the fact that she was going to show DVDs for free. Come to think of it, I bet they have to show them for free because it would be illegal to charge audiences to see them. Sad to see that the days are numbered for that place, I really think it could be a money maker with the right management.

. You are absolutely rite if they wanted to charge people they would have to license the dvd.. they aren't doing anything good for the community. They only keep blaming the community for thier misfortune. Maybe more people would bring thier kids if it was more family oriented. Last time I went I parked out back in the doctors office parking lot because the parking situation sucks thier. Them when we walked by the real tall guy that works there was smoking pot in the ally . Real nice to walk by with my kids and have them subjected to that. With proper management that place could be a nice theater ..

True .... That is true I am new to the area I did not know that till I witnessed it first hand.I am just now finding out all the bullshit that goes on in and around that place. They had a kids movie playing and with 4 dollars a ticket I figured I would give it a shot. I regret the experience.

Not to worry, Newster. Once the new owners take over and they go all porno they'll get rid of all the rift-raft and druggies. I've also heard they'll have dancers a few nights a week. They're going to call them the "Uptown Girls" as a take off on the Billy Joel song. Kinda cool, huh. This should be a pretty classy joint - stay tuned.

If she allowed people to smoke pot in the theater,I don't feel sorry for her lack of business. NO COMMON SENSE !! She should have known better with kids being around. After being married twice you would think she would have better judgment.

If the issue be pushed, they can't even legally show DVDs. The showing is profit driven by way of bar and concessions sales. A big no-no.
