Proposed Redesign

If I recall correctly, this was the original proposed design for the Uptown renovation that eventually occurred in 2012. Details of note: the bar was originally on the ground level (another storefront would ultimately take this place), stairs to the mezzanine were still in the lobby instead of the auditorium, and ticket cash registers were placed peculiarly close to concession cash registers.

Box Office/Concession Stand (1983 - 2012)

I've previously mentioned the bizarre box office/concession stand combo that was constructed in the Uptown around 1983 and remained until its decimation in 2012, but now here is photographic documentation! For the record, these pictures were taken in 1998, given the Love & Death on Long Island poster in the background.

For an added bonus, here's a look at the Lagoon Cinema lobby from around the same era, complete with candy scoops, Safety Last picture, and a Big Lebowski bowling shirt that currently resides in the Uptown basement.
