The Uptown Theatre was built in 1926 and over the years billed itself as “Youngtown’s Luxury Theater” as it hosted plays, musicals and movie screenings and served as the home of Easy Street Productions. The building was renovated in 1965 to include two upstairs apartments, each with a private entrance.
