The Parkway Theater opened for business in February 1931 and has been operating as a neighborhood cinema ever since. Although originally designed with a Spanish Mediterranean exterior for reasons unknown to us it was erected with a deco modern facade which we revealed in the summer of 2006 when we removed the metal facing covering it installed in the 1950's. For the last four decades the Parkway theater was owned and run by Bill Irvine who took the reins in 1972 and brought it back from the clutches of an adult film venue and turned the Parkway into one of the finest independent and offbeat film venues in the Midwest. So, now it's our turn to add to the long legacy of the Parkway theater, one of the last single screen movie houses in the Twin Cities. We want future generations to be able to look back and feel the history we tried to save. Hopefully the energy which we put forth today in our efforts will be felt for many years to come.
