The New Parkway has ongoing theme nights that offer something for everyone:
Doc Night on Tuesdays: Join the New Parkway for our weekly documentary screenings at 7pm. We show lots of documentaries at the theater but the Doc Night screening is when we often have filmmakers in attendance and/or follow up the screening with a community dialogue. Some of the screenings are one off presentations while others are part of a larger series. Always engaging and always pertinent.
Baby Brigade on Thursday afternoons: While the New Parkway Theater is an all ages theater, and you are welcome to bring your baby at any time, Baby Brigade is specifically set aside as a time for parents with infants to watch an adult movie with your baby in tow. Instead of having to get a babysitter, why not just bring your baby to the movies? We’ll show one of our regular features each week (generally at 4pm), provide stroller parking, and we’ll even have a dimly lit area for pacing and/or changing your baby. The best part…an audience that understands if there are a few screams or whimpers along the way. Although we do lower the volume, please note that some of the movies are loud–or at least loud for baby ears–and we recommend bringing ear plugs if your baby is sensitive to loud sounds.
Animation K.O. on 1st Thursdays: A showcase of animated films from around the world that will mesmerize you with beauty, knock you out with action, and warm the heart. Sometimes all of these elements are in the same movie! Curated and hosted by the effervescent Kyle Montez.
Parkway Classics on most Thursdays: Parkway Classics is a series of films that either played or could have played at the original Parkway Speakeasy Theater. Bask in the warm glow of a time not too long ago when watching a movie along Park Blvd was the epitome of a great movie going experience!
Throwback Theater on 1st Fridays
Staff Pick Night on occasional First Friday nights: The New Parkway staff bring their favorite films to First Fridays.
Mystery Mystery Science Theater 3000 on 2nd Fridays: On second Fridays we present a mystery episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000! Who knows what episode we’ll be playing… but you can be sure it’s going to be good. Join us for a night of laughter and fun hosted by The New Parkway’s own resident Mystery Science Theater 3000 fan, Oliver Beckwith. The pre-show includes a trivia contest with prizes!
Cult Night on 3rd Fridays: We dust off the hits whose glory supersedes their original box office success.
Music Night on 4th Fridays
Cereal Cinema every Saturday: Remember growing up and sitting glued to the TV screen watching your favorite cartoons while eating your favorite cereal on Saturday mornings – or even weekday afternoons if you could get away with it? Well, come relive this cherished childhood experience with a variety of both choice cereals and specially selected cartoons from several decades in our spacious public living room, on our humongous “TV screen,” with a bunch of other grown-ups & kids sharing the same memories, while making new ones! Cartoons and cereal go together like popcorn and movies!
