Uptown Theater Proposal Would Convert Historic Space Into Concert Hall

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) -- A popular Minneapolis landmark has plans to transform from an iconic movie theater to a concert hall.

The proposal for the Uptown Theater, which closed in early 2020 as the pandemic began, would add space for some 2,500 people by knocking down a wall into the next building.
