Uptown Entertainment and Development Corporation
The Uptown Entertainment and Development Corporation held a fundraiser Friday night for the historic Uptown Theater at the CBS Broadcast Center.
To celebrate Black Music Month, the Philadelphia landmark is opening its doors to the public for a day of tours.
The art deco-styled theatre opened its doors in 1929. It started out as a movie theatre, and by the 1960s it was the crown jewel of Philadelphia’s black entertainment scene.
