The Parkway Theatre’s unique architecture and design approach celebrates the building’s 100 years of opulence, decay, and reinvention. The stunning transformation of this grand theater contrasts modern interventions with a century of history, resulting in a ‘rescued ruin’ where layers of the past coexist with the future.
Architects Ziger/Snead and designers Post Typography, along with Southway Builders share stories and the process behind the theater’s provocative design and the challenges of bringing this abandoned movie palace back to life as a year-round home for contemporary cinema. Explore one of Baltimore’s most unique architectural landmarks while enjoying a cocktail, craft beer, and some popcorn.
