What a concept: movies with food and wine! Order a glass of wine and popcorn at the counter and then grab a couch. What more can you ask for. Caveat: their wines by the carafe are spendy. They are constantly on Groupon if you want to save some money.

and delicious wide menu of refreshments beyond traditional movie theater salt/sugar stuff. This is a community crossroads, not just a theater!

It's a great place for a date. You get a chance to see a great movie and have a light dinner, dinner and regular movie theater snacks at a table or settled on a comfortable sofa. It's a very unique experience!

Comfy sofas and chairs, with a good selection of tasty eats and beverages, including beer and wine, makes for an enjoyable date night.

I don't have really high expectations for this place, although they've outdone their previous location. Good, simple food, good drink. Come for the film, stay for a bite while watching.

Delicious food, comfy seats, good selection of movies, frequent groupons, baby-friendly (at times), and good showtimes! What's not to like?

We saw a near-first-run film here and enjoyed the ambience & sofa seating. We didn't make use of the location, but its proximity to a raft of late-night spots is a further reason to visit here instead of one of the omniplexes.

Who can't love a movie theater with couches and food service? I have to say this is one of my favorite places because the concept is so perfect. There are several forms of entertainment at the New Parkway (as there were at the original). Weds nights are themes, like showcases of specific filmakers, genres, and artistic forms of cinematic "kitsch."... More
