And did you hear about the Uptown?

I’m guessing most of you heard this over the weekend (or earlier; seems like it was a bit of an open secret), but I’m repeating it in case anyone missed it: SIFF has taken over the lease at the Uptown and will re-open it in October as their home for year-round arthouse programming. (SIFF Cinema, their current leased space at McCaw Hall, will close, and the Uptown will be re-named SIFF Cinema at the Uptown.) This is welcome news for all who mourned the loss of this longtime Queen Anne neighborhood moviehouse, which AMC closed last November. Details are here; it’s nice to be able to pass along such good news.
