The Parkway was a nice theatre. I remember passing by it going through Chandler in the 60’s. It appeared to be a good sized theatre. It was located a few doors south of the famous San Carlos hotel where all the minor league baseball teams stayed during spring season. The theatre and hotel were part of a beautiful town square design business district typical of small towns in the 20s. There was another smaller theatre, possibly the State, in the east wing of this same square. I believe both buildings are still there but changed architecturally and hard to spot.

I was the projectionist at the Parkway when it was under new management around 1976/1977. R.I.P. Parkway. Randolph James Wendt
