The New Parkway Theater is the rebirth of Oakland’s iconic Picture Pizza Pub, once located on Park Boulevard. We like to think of ourselves as an extension of your own living room- consistently cooking up great meals, stocking a variety of local beers & wines on draft, arranging all the art & furniture, and of course playing second-run films.
Our mission is to:
- Give our patrons a unique movie going experience that is far from generic
- Be a wonderful place to work- where employees are excited to come to work, are treated fairly, and share in the profits of the business
- Be a truly sustainable business, one that puts people and the planet over profit, and that considers the long-term health of our patrons and our neighbors as we shape our business practices
- Promote community within the theater and beyond by connecting strangers who might not otherwise meet and by encouraging greater learning and understanding through our diverse offerings
- Be accessible and welcoming to everyone in Oakland and beyond, through being affordable and by offering programming that appeals to a cross section of all residents.
