SIFF Cinema at the Uptown

  • SIFF had a terrific opportunity to buy the aging Uptown Cinema last year and it's now reopened, steam-cleaned and restored. Check out Purple Rain, Hedwig, Grease and many more films coming soon.
  • They use REAL butter on their popcorn!
  • It's re-opened
  • Don't forget flavor shakers for popcorn opposite side of lobby from food stand!
  • $25 gets you all you watch movies at both SIFF cinemas for a month!
  • My favorite theatre.
  • Recently remodeled, this is the place to enjoy indie and avant-garde movies in Seattle.
  • Reasonable-ish prices on concessions.
  • Great place to catch an Indy flick can even enjoy an adult beverage
  • The coolest movie theater in the city! 4 screens, beer, tons of local films, and super friendly staff.
  • One of the few places in Seattle to watch independent films. Old, needs an upgrade, specially their AC.
  • Beers? And it's craft!?
  • Cool neighborhood cinema that serves local beer and wine
  • They serve beer here now :D
  • Make sure to introduce yourself to the directors of the NFFTY films! They're all really friendly!
  • Free parking (1st & Republic) with purchase on movie ticket.
  • Bring a coat. These theaters are unbelievably freezing.
  • Look for the quote-a-longs, they're a hoot!!!
  • If you are taller, mind the back row. There is a wooden barricade you'll get your head thrown into if you just fall into your seat. That was me.
  • No tickets for us at will call even though we were charged for them a week ago. Had to stand there and talk and talk to be let in.
