While tears at the movies are normally the result of great filmmaking, tears at the iconic Uptown Theater were more often induced by rogue springs poking you in the butt. Thankfully, someone finally took notice that watching Ben Stiller squirm in Meet the Parents wasn't the only thing making audiences uncomfortable, then closed the place for a year and half and totally gutted it.
Well, the area's last balcony-equipped, old-school movie house is back and better than ever, and you can see it in this photo tour. So check out the $2mil renovation's bigger & better screen, expanded concession area with "gourmet offerings", lounge with beer and wine service, and roomy leather seats & sofas, all meaning this place is way better, no butts involved.
