    Opened as Loew's uptown (vaudeville), was converted to movies later on, and was split into five theatres in 1969. It was demolished (and collapsed) in 2003.

    During the demolition a crane hit a support beam in the auditorium and killed a civilian in a building next door and injured 15 other people.

    Only the front entrance way is left.

    (Has now been turned into condos)

     Media Coverage
    Film festival, The theatres collapse in 2003
     Future Plans
    Famous Players has announced that it will replace the Uptown with a 10-screen movie center across the street, which will be part of a condo-plus-retail complex at 1 Bloor St. E. planned by the development company Nastapoka.
