The Parkway Theatre currently stands vacant on West North Avenue in Baltimore City, just west of Charles Street.
The theatre was opened October 23, 1915 with Pauline Frederick in “Zaza”. The auditorium is an almost direct copy of the auditorium of the 1913-built West End Cinema Theatre/Rialto Theatre, Coventry Street, London, which was seen by an American visitor while on a trip to London. The Parkway Theatre was redecorated in 1926 by architect John Eberson. It operated well into the early-1980’s.
The area has fallen on hard times and the Parkway Theatre, which recently was a Korean Businesses Owners Assn. Headquarters, currently is vacant.
Plans in 2001 to save the Parkway Theatre were also unsuccessful. With an upturn in the area in recent years, in early-2013, it was announced the Parkway Theatre was to be renovated and used as a new home for the Maryland Film Festival.
The Charles Theatre, Baltimore’s ‘Art theatre’ is just around the corner on Charles Street.
