Alamo Drafthouse SF Plans Oakland Expansion To Old Parkway Theater
Alamo Drafthouse SF Plans Oakland Expansion To Old Parkway Theater The Old Parkway Theater, one of my favorite haunts before it shut down, and located at 1836 Park Boulevard in Oakland, has been closed for six years, or since Speakeasy Theaters, which operated it and the El Cerrito, went out of business in 2009. But the old legendary place seems to be the focus of a plan that just may be what the revitalization doctor ordered: Alamo Drafthouse bar and restaurant in San Francisco is planning to expand to a new place in Oakland at that address. This news came via an obscure Facebook post I happened to catch moments ago, and was installed on August 2, by someone named Tina Marie. What's interesting about her Facebook profile is she and I have a mutual friend in Will Vaharo. Will now lives in Seattle but he once lived in Oakland and was one of the cool group of people that made up Speakeasy Theaters. He was known for the Thrillville shows back then. Not sure if he's involved in this new effort or not, but the connection is a provocative one. Community Meeting Wednesday August 10th, 5:30 pm, Woody's Cafe If you want to find out more about the Alamo Drafthouse plans for the Old Parkway Theater, there will be a community meeting today, Wednesday August 10th, 5:30 pm at Woody's Cafe, 1841 Park Boulevard. Oakland's District Two Councilmember Able Guillen will be there, along with the Alamo representatives. Stay tuned.
