The Save the Historic Uptown Theatre petition is intended to increase awareness about the renovation and reuse potential of an important historic landmark and to document the public support that exists for its use as an entertainment venue. Compass Rose Cultural Crossroads, the sponsor of this petition, is NOT seeking monetary donations for the restoration of the theatre and is not associated with any groups or organizations that claim to raise money for a reuse project. The Uptown Theatre is privately owned and there is not an opportunity to make donations at this time.

We the undersigned wish to make known our concerns for the future of the historic Uptown Theatre at 4816 N. Broadway in Chicago. We believe that:


The Uptown Theatre is a unique architectural, historic, and cinematic treasure that is worthy of preservation as an entertainment venue. Nationwide, few so-called Movie Palaces or historic theatres of the Uptowns scale and grandeur have survived in their entirety. Most have been either demolished or completely gutted in short-sighted commercial ventures, often converting them to condos or shopping malls and leaving only the facades. The Uptown Theatre is considered one of the last, best theatres not yet renovated, and therefore offers a rare opportunity for a complete restoration project. It has already been declared a historic landmark both inside and out and is included on several city, state, and national historic buildings lists. Along with the Aragon Ballroom, the Riviera Theatre, the world-famous Green Mill jazz club, and the many elaborate terra-cotta buildings that line Lawrence and Broadway Avenues, the Uptown Theatre forms the core of a recognized historic district and for that reason alone must be restored.

The restoration of the Uptown Theatre is in fact the key to the revitalization of the entire Uptown neighborhood, one of the most culturally vibrant areas in Chicago. Uptown is favored by its enviable location near Lake Michigan; its diverse residents; its proximity to the well-established neighborhoods of Andersonville, Edgewater, and Wrigleyville; its excellent public transportation; and its abundance of attractive housing to make it the next region of Chicago to experience regrowth and development. The time is right and the interest exists within the community to restore the Uptown Theatre. Resurrecting Uptown as an entertainment district will attract money and tourism to the north side of Chicago.

Although the Uptown Theatre has remained closed for many years, studies indicate that it is structurally sound and a good candidate for restoration. An Urban Land Institute study, sponsored and funded by the Chicago Department of Planning and Development to help develop a vision for the market potential and planning/design of the Uptown Entertainment District, supports this conclusion. The ULI report states that the Uptown Theatre is the crown jewel of the Uptown District and one of the most outstanding theatres in the United States and that it must be restored. We hope to inspire civic leaders, urban planners, and other interested parties in selecting a reuse project that will restore and preserve, at a bare minimum, the faзade, the main lobby, and the grand auditorium. With only minor modification it can be reopened as an entertainment venue, cultural center, and reception /convention hall of which the City of Chicago can be proud. The restored theatre probably will be required to accommodate more uses than intended for by the original theatre, but this can be done sensitively and with respect to the original design.

The City of Chicago and the State of Illinois must take proactive roles in the restoration of the Uptown Theatre. As part of a TIF (tax incremented finance) district a portion of the necessary funds to begin such a project could be made available. At a minimum, funds should be granted for the stabilization of the building and to provide for minimal repairs to prevent further deterioration of the theatre. Time is of the essence. A building can be mothballed for future restoration but nothing lasts forever.

Because the Uptown Theatre is a national treasure, the public deserves to have a voice in the fate of this theatre. We ask that the public be kept informed of any plans in the works and be allowed to voice our opinion on such plans. To date, area residents and nationwide supporters of the theatre rely on speculation and rumor for updates. We hope that communication can be improved. We ask that any planning meetings be made open to the public, and that regular public meetings for the restoration of the theatre be initiated immediately.

Restoring the Uptown Theatre will help preserve the communitys appearance and character and maintain its unique identity and personality. It will provide our children, our childrens children, and all generations to come a glimpse of the stunning architecture of our forefathers and mothers. We thank you for your time and attention.

    • I saw a program called Urban Explorers on cable. They were in Chicago exploring and one of there goals was the Uptown Theatre. I was stunned. What an incredible piece of architecture and history. It MUST be preserved. It needs to be restored and once again become a centre for the arts, be they video or on stage. I truly hope you succeed. To not, would be an utter loss for everyone. Most sincerely, Ken Argent Edmonton, Alberta.

    • I live literally down the street from the Uptown Theatre and walk past it everyday to get home. I love the days that the front doors are open and I get to peak inside at the huge, beautiful lobby. I would love to see the theatre refurbished so I could actually see the beautiful interior.

    • When we were young, my grandmother would take us to the Uptown,the Riviera, or the Granada theaters. I loved to go not just to see the movie, but to admire the beautiful decor. I would pretend i was a princess in a castle. I loved the goldfish in the pond at the Uptown. How can anyone destroy such beautiful architecual history. We go to italy and Europe to see ruins.Why destroy such magnificent design.

    • It was about 1961 when I was 11 or 12 that I started spending my Sundays at the Uptown Theater. My friends and I would show up early and stay until the last movie was finished. Little did I realize the history and magical majesty we giggled around. I look at any photos now of it's previous splendor and think, wow, that was my favorite destination as a kid and I never knew how lucky I was to be able to experience it. I do now. Imagine, we'd sneak up into the balcony and pretend to be famous movie stars decending that grand staircase. I remember those days so vividly, it places the Uptown near and dear to my heart. I look at the old photos (whenever I can find them) and know this mystical, beautiful landmark must be saved.

    • I read about The Granada and fell into tears (literally). I don't understand why such beautiful theatres with so many beautiful memories of yesterday (or even tomorrow) should be abandoned. Count me in to help save this beloved, historic, work of art! These buildings remind us of the magic and splendor of the cinema before video games and television. They are timeless monuments to be adored for generations to come, not left to be simple photographs on random websites. The Uptown Theatre should be a part of the restoration of the city of Chicago and all of its remarkable history...

    • I moved to Chicago 2 years ago. I've never been in the theatre, but looking at the photos there is no way anyone in their right mind could tear down this architectural gem. Coming from Atlanta, we almost lost the Fox Theatre. The wrecking ball was at the building, but a man moved into the theatre to save it. Once enough money was raised, it was saved and the man could come outside again. I hope this doesn't happen here in Chicago.
