Neighbor provides local movie theatre update

Subject: Penguins to leave The Uptown soon
I hope many of you saw the wonderful movie March of the Penguins, and you saw it at our neighborhood theatre, the Uptown. I saw the movie from Uptown's balcony which was a real threat to see the strutting penguins, the penguin eggs, the landscape, just everything about the movie on the theatre's huge screen. The manager said the last day for the movie at the Uptown will be next Thursday, September 29th. The next movie is Oliver Twist. Judy Hubbard Saul
