With theaters temporarily closed because of the 'stay at home' order in Minnesota, many have missed going to the movies.
For more than a century, the Uptown Theatre in Minneapolis has been showing movies on the silver screen.
The Uptown opened as the Lagoon Theater in 1916. The theater has stood through two worldwide pandemics and two world wars.
The famous 60-foot Uptown sign once featured a revolving beam of light that could be seen for miles.
The Uptown closed in mid-March and they posted funny movie quotes on the marquee.
"Just kind of bring a little levity," manager Rich Gill said. "We're still here. It's going to be OK eventually, so let's try to get through this and have a laugh."
When the Uptown reopens, they may have lower capacity and people may have to wear gloves and masks.
