A reader writes in with the following info:
"Did nobody else witness the smoke and fire trucks around the Uptown Theatre last night? We were standing in front of the Bank of America about 9:30pm, and saw smoking billowing from the roof, firemen, trucks, EMS, etc. I overheard one of the EMS guys say, "It looks like it's out," shortly after the smoke disappeared. Everyone was so relieved. I was amazed how much the eyewitnesses knew about the theatre's importance to our neighborhood. People were genuinely concerned that we were witnessing the destruction of a neighborhood institution.
I haven't heard what the source of the fire was and if there was any significant damage. Any updates?"
