NAPA, California (CelebrityAccess) — The Uptown Theatre in downtown Napa was one of the many buildings damaged by a 6.0 earthquake that struck the region early Sunday morning. The earthquake, the most powerful to hit the San Francisco Bay Area since the Loma Prieta earthquake in 1989.
Theatre owner George Altamura told the Napa Valley Register that the theatre had suffered a partial ceiling collapse.
On the venue's Facebook page, a spokesperson for the venue wrote: You know we love Rock and Roll, but a 6.0 earthquake in our backyard at 3:20 am this morning has left all of us a little shaken. Thank you all for your calls and emails of concern and offers of help. A big thank you to Central Valley Lumber and Golden State Lumber for donating Plywood to our neighboring downtown merchants in their time of need. We are waiting for the lights to come back on so we can fully assess the status of the theatre and we will keep you posted. Best wishes to all our patrons and fellow merchants affected by this. Keep taking care of each other.
Fortunately, according to the venue's calendar, their next show isn't until September 26th, when comedian Dana Carvey is set to perform at the venue. – Staff Writers
