The Loews Uptown was actually carved into five auditoriums. The Uptown 3 consisted of the former balcony (Uptown 1) and the orchestra section which was divided down the middle (Uptown 2 & 3). The former stage area became a separate cinema entirely with its own entrance on a side street (Backstage 2).

All that remains today is the lobby building.
