The Parkway Theater was a much-beloved pizza/pub/theater for 14 years, and before that a more traditional movie theater for many years after its construction in the 1920s. There have been hopes that the theater might reopen, but the East Bay Express reports that deal has fallen through. Zennie Abraham at Oakland Focus has an interview with the Fischers who ran the Parkway for the last 14 years. And Oaklander Online has a nice write-up on it, including some historic photos from its construction and different phases of its life. Apparently the Parkway, unlike its sister theater in El Cerrito, was making money. So there's hope it could still be re-opened.
