The old Parkway Theater on Park Blvd. was a popular place for second run movies. It was known for cheap tickets, casual seating using sofas and loveseats, pizzas and beer, and family night for families with small children and infants. The story I heard is that the landlord raised the rent, the theater couldn't afford it, and the operation shut down. The theater has been empty since 2009. A new Parkway later opened in a neighboring town and now the new, new Parkway has just opened in Oakland's Uptown area. Sofas and loveseats--check. Pizza and beer--check. You decide how much to pay for the tickets--whoa!
