Via  NY City founding member Biff Buttler:

We’re excited about this fundraiser for an Uptown neighborhood group:  on October 26 a chance to see the fabled interior of the Uptown Theater.  The rest sounds cool, but it’s the lobby tour that has us twitterpated. . . “ 

(October 26 is also the 90th anniversary of the opening of the Chicago Theatre in 1921.  Rapp and Rapp designed both theatres for Balaban & Katz. The larger Uptown opened in 1925.)
