Parkway's Last Dance. The Parkway Theater, 1997-2009.

The Parkway Theater in Oakland, California, closed its doors on Sunday, March 22. For 12 years, the Parkway offered independent movies and served beer, wine and pizza in a "lounge" setting. The Parkway also served as an icon for an otherwise quiet neighborhood just east of Lake Merritt. Its owners, Speakeasy Theaters, ended their run with a performance by the band Carne Crude and a screening of the film Que Viva La Lucha, a documentary about Lucha Libre wrestlers in Tijuana.
