The Uptown Theatre was designed by the Boller Brothers opening on December 9, 1941 seating 1,200. The front facade of the Uptown Theatre was a yellow brick with black panels forming a V shape down the middle until it reached the marquee. The lower part along the street level of the facade was lined with black panels and orange trim around the poster cases and the box office. The box office was in the center with entrance doors to each side. It had a large triangular style marquee with the Uptown name on each side.
The Uptown Theatre had a large lobby with plaster molding trim along the ceilings. The staircase to the balcony was to the right side. The concession stand was in the middle along the back wall of the auditorium. There was decorative plaster trim around the stage with velvet draperies linging the stage. The multiplexes in the Rolla area finally caused the closing of the Uptown Theatre in 1998. It then became a bar/restaurant.
Demolition of the theatre commenced on March 24, 2010.
