The best first dates aren't just an hour of small talk over drinks, they're events — something that charges the prospective couple with the sense that they're breaking from their usual routines, and that anything might happen. Maybe two folks meet for a beer, and then the beer turns into snacks, and then they're having enough fun hanging out that they need a next destination. There's no better bet for extending a date than a midnight movie at the Uptown Theatre. The newly added second-floor bar allows the daters to continue forgetting that hanging out with a stranger is awkward (read: keep drinking), and the selection of classics and cult faves (recent showings include The Shining, Jurassic Park, 2001: A Space Odyssey, and Donnie Darko) lets them bond over teenage favorites, flicks they mutually missed out on, '90s nostalgia, a shared love for animatronic dinos, and other common interests they might not have discovered without the Uptown's careful curation and extra-plush refurbished seats. By the time the late showing lets out, the lovebirds will be ready for bed.
