We live in the area and have been to this theater a number of times. How can you beat a $2.00 movie and good movies at that! However, keep in mind that $2.00 doesn't give you a new, comfy, clean theater. It's kinda dingy and...More

We have gone to this theatre a number of times, it is hard to beat a $2.00 movie ticket but you do give up some things. First of all, they are not always first run movies, next, the place smells, it is old and dirty....More

We go see most movies that are here. Can't beat the price and the atmosphere is calm and relaxing. It's an older place but it's worth it to see movies that you don't want to pay $20 a ticket for. The sound is also perfect....More

Movies are cheap, theater is a little older but its great for folks that enjoy the movie experience but are willing to wait for a good price. It's amazing for a budget date, air hockey and a romantic comedy what could be better.

We were surprised to see a movie for $2.50. The theater is small and shows movies already shown in a big theaters. Clean and nice inside.

You can not complain about anything if you go for $2 to the movies right? Sure, it is old and a little dirty. Still! $2!!! Great job parkway 8 for keeping up this price!

This is a great bargain for decent movies but the concession stand takes FOREVER to get through!! Get there very early if you want popcorn and see your movie on time. Management doesn't seem to care about the lines either.

Remember the movie theaters of old? Sticky floors? The smell of buttered popcorn? Retro carpeting? Well, the Parkway Eight (commonly referred to as "the dollar theater") is that place. So if you want to see a movie on the big screen but don't want to...More

Where else can you see almost first run movies for 2.00 (matinee) or 2.50 (evening)? Sure, you have to wait until after the Oscars are handed out, and it's a bit old and musty, but all in all, a bargain.
