The Uptown Theatre offers headline entertainment in a world class environment.  Uptown is a beautifully restored art deco period theatre originally opening in 1937 and brought back to its glory with state of the art sound system, lighting and comfortable seating.  Uptown Theatre has hosted a myriad of top named artists and this summer will be hosting hit-maker Kenny Loggins, comedian Lisa Lampanelli, crooner Chris Isaak, southern rock group The Marshall Tucker Band, comedian Dana Carvey and a special stop by Dave Mason and his Traffic Jam tour. 

More shows are always being added to the already amazing summer lineup so check the schedule regularly or subscribe to their newsletter for new show announcements here.

#2.  Beat the Heat in the Most Comfortable Venue in Town!  
The seats at Uptown are extra cushy and the leg room extra spacious. Customers have coined the catch phrase "Every Seat is a Great Seat" due to the wide aisles, soft slope of the floor and the best sound quality in Northern California. Not only is this theatre lovingly restored with beautifully appointed period murals and gold accents but whether you're in the front row or the last, the sound quality is just as good and the sight lines are great from every vantage point.  And best of all?  It's Air-conditioned!  Beat the heat after a long summer day of wine tasting, bike riding or sight-seeing by getting indoors where only the entertainment is HOT!

#3.  Located in the Hub of Napa Valley!
Uptown Theatre is located in the heart of downtown Napa, which has become the hub of Napa Valley. Only a few steps and blocks away are world-class wines and restaurants. Dine at restaurants like Chef Morimoto's namesake restaurant for fresh, expertly prepared seafood and sushi.  You can never go wrong with dinner at Cole's Chop House for the very best in an American Steakhouse, or the newest restaurant along Main Street, Torc for elegant yet authentic California Cuisine with global influences.  There are scores of casual dining places in addition to a popping night scene where you can grab drink or glass of fine wine before or after a show at one of many wine bars that keep cropping up in downtown Napa.
#4.  Uptown Has WINE!
As an added bonus, The Uptown Theatre has not one but two bars in the lobby and offer premium wines by the glass that you can take into the theatre to enjoy at your seats. The wine list includes award-winning cabernet from Silver Oak, Merlot from Duckhorn Vineyards or sip a cool, crisp, refreshing Sauvignon Blanc from St. Supery; these are just a few of the standout selections.  Beer choices include Stella Artois, Sierra Nevada and Lagunitas IPA.  There are plenty of non-alcoholic choices as well to cool off your whistle.
