Yeah. Sad and guilty about that. I love the Parkway, but haven't been into movies much for the last year. :{

I heard about this earlier and was shocked. It's breathtaking how many businesses have closed lately, so many of them favorites that I wish I'd supported more. And like the Parkway, it happens so quickly.

That makes me really sad to hear about. I used to love to go there when I lived in the area.

It's so *fast*.

If anyone hears the d/l on what is really going on, I hope it'll get passed along. I have to wonder - liquor license issues? Landlord trying to tear it down to make way for condos? What?

I'm really bummed to now have to drive to El Cerrito, and to be losing such a great place here in Oakland.

How about, the credit they got during the slow season to make it to the high season, just isn't available anymore? I'm just guessing, but that's what's happening all over the place.

I haven't been checking the updates lately (why make myself sad over places I can't go), but a friend pointed out that they started going dark on Mondays a while back. I really wish it was something we could fight, but I suspect it's the craptastic economy.

crazy!I only just heard about this today, but have since heard about it a dozen times.
I wish I had known! I would've tried to go more often. This is a sad fact indeed.

I've been there four or five times in the last year and I live across the bay...grr.

I loved that place. King of Kong. Zombie Strippers. Welcome to the Dollhouse.
