    1924 · The Egyptian Theater is Constructed

    Age 1

    After the Arlington Hotel burnt down in 1923, Harman and Louis Peery devised a plan to build a grand theater like the Grand Opera House but with moving pictures. It was constructed after the manner of other famous theaters that were Egyptian-themed. The first feature played there was a silent film titled, "Wanderer of the Wasteland" and was accompanied by the famous pipe organ named, "The Mighty Wurlitzer". In 1951 the theater was renovated so that more people would be able to enjoy the films shown there. The theater exists today but only as a community theater and performing arts house.

    Name Meaning

    English: habitational name from any of the many places in England called Upton, most of which are named with Old English upp ‘upper’ + tūn ‘farmstead, estate’, though some have different origins, such as one in Essex, originally named with the phrase upp in tūne ‘up in the settlement’, i.e. the higher part of the settlement, and Upton Lovell (Wiltshire), which derives from the Old English personal name Ubba + Old English tūn. This name was brought to Ireland (Antrim) in 1598 by Henry Upton, from Upton in Devon.
