MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A popular theater in the Uptown neighborhood in Minneapolis is getting ready to close — but not for long.

The Uptown Theater is closing Tuesday, Jan. 31 for renovations. Landmark Theatres, which operates the theater, expects a spring 2012 reopening.

The expected improvements include a giant new screen, luxury seating, a full-service bar and expanded concession stand. The theater is also expected to be optimized for digital projection.

The landmark “Uptown Theater” neon sign will stay, as will the balcony.

The theater has been on Hennepin Avenue since 1913. It was renamed the Uptown Theater in 1929.
