kclewis2004 commented about Uptown Theatre on Jan 21, 2015 at 2:01 am

As a kid growing up in the area of 105th St Clair, the Giant Tigers Discount Store seemed out of place with its neighboring buildings and especially the Glenville Masonic Temple. I later learned it was the site of the Uptown Theatre which explained the huge parking lot in the back knowing that could not have been for the GT or Krogers. It was also the site of one of several visits to the neighborhood by Dr Martin Luther King during Carl Stokes' 1967 mayoral campaign. The Uptown seated nearly 3,600 and it had a huge parking lot to match!
