Cleveland Park’s Uptown Theater has seen its fair share of films and stars — after all, it was the site of the world premieres for Jurassic Park, 2001: A Space Odyssey, and Star Trek: The Motion Picture, among others. Plus, it gives real meaning to the phrase “movie palace.” Showing just one first-run feature at a time, this is the place to watch that one really epic blockbuster of the season — especially if you're the sort that embraces opening-night hype. On a side note, we also can’t get over the second-floor seating and the awesomely retro bathrooms.
