Uptown Theater

Yesterday I was about to write about the impending foreclosure sale of the Uptown Theater, but was crunched for time. I think that using the magnificent old theater as a concert venue is its best chance for survival. Later yesterday, I got the news that the Uptown has a new owner. I hope that Jam Productions does justice to the place. Having it back in operation, along with the Aragon, the Riviera and the Green Mill makes Uptown more an entertainment destination, and a transit friendly one at that.

Yeah, I agree with you. I'd love to see another live music venue on that corner -- we go down there to go to Fat Cat and the Green Mill pretty regularly.

I don't know much about Jam Productions, personally, but I'm similarly hopeful that they do it justice.
