Hello everyone!  I’m so thrilled to be seeing all the snow melt away, as I just came back from Jamaica. Compared to when we left, I see grass and bulbs already coming up. YEAHHHH!  (I hate winter)!

What about you? Are you a winter lover?

My husband and I went to see La La Land Saturday evening, which was great timing before the Oscars took place.  (Absolutely loved the movie, but was hoping it received “Best Movie”)!  We saw it in a retro cinema in downtown Barrie, “The Uptown”. 

 Totally loved the vintage vibe of the theatre.  The outside and the inside have been kept in the “old school” style of a gone-by era…..

The box office….(image-google)


Inside the foyer are two of the original red velvet chairs, which have now been replaced in some of the theatre rooms with wicked leatherette recliners….


Needless to say, there was some snoring happening because the chairs were out of this world comfortable…..

This is the only theatre I know of that has a licensed bar.  The craftsmanship is just gorgeous….


They kept the old film projector as a piece of nostalgia…



They have their own wall of fame, in black and white, showing different celebrities that have been in the theatre, as the Uptown hosts the Barrie Film Festival……..



Sorry!  Picture was in a dark stairwell, so not a great take of Marilyn Monroe….

A great job of refurbishing an amazing building back to it’s original glory!  We need to save more of the past to hand on to the next generation, as part of their history.

Do you appreciate the old brought back, or are you modern all the way?

I love the old architecture.  A great city to see fabulous architecture is Chicago……

(I should have been born in Victorian times, with today’s amenities…)

Take pride in what we are passing on!  Until next time, Judy
