Not only ROSEMARY’S BABY played here but also THE FRENCH CONNECTION and ROCKY among many others that played at the Parkway Theatre when it was still a single screen cinema during the 1960’s and 1970’s.

To Ret. AKC(NAC)CC Bob Jensen: I have done extensive research on this theatre and this information on the Parkway has been updated as of 3/20/2012.

The Parkway Theatre upon it’s opening was Winston-Salem’s first ever suburban theatre,and it was a first-run alternative to the Downtown moviehouses when it opened on September 1,1965. I have the original ads for its grand opening. The opening attraction on September 1,1965 was a Rock Hudson flick starring Leslie Caron “A Very Special Favor”. It was owned and operated until Schneider-Merl Theatres.

I remember seeing “Rosemary’s Baby” (among many others) at the Parkway. It was a first-run alternative to the Carolina and the Winston when it opened. A good guess when it opened is 1965. I never saw anything there after it was split.
