I wrote an oral history of my favorite cinema, the Uptown Theater on Connecticut Ave. NW here in DC, for the Washington City Paper. I love the oral history format. Cutting this down to publishable length tested me. My apologies to the various people whose comments were cut for length.
AMC Theatres declined to make attendance figures available for publication, but they told me they’ve ticket up slightly in the last year. I hope that means the Uptown will stick around a long time.
