Restored Parkway to resume with a remarkable lineup of events; Great Makers Exchange at ASI

The Liquid Music.)

And we’ve always liked the Parkway and its South Minneapolis setting in Minneapolis’ Field-Regina-Northrop area (on Chicago Ave. north of Minnehaha Parkway), though the last time we existed, the nearly 90-year-old theater required a great deal of work and a serious cleaning.In the renovate, the seats

have actually been reupholstered, painted and repositioned for more leg space. Capability is around 360, about the like the Walker’s McGuire Theater. The sound system has been upgraded. There’s a brand-new bar in the lobby, serving local craft beers and mixed drinks. In the lobby: coin-operated arcade video games and 2 additional restrooms. On Friday, the Parkway announced its resuming

date– Sept. 13– and its fall/winter schedule. Patrick Marschke, a musician and composer who worked with Nordstrum at Liquid Music, is doing the booking. The line-up looks fantastic: 26 occasions (up until now ), consisting of traditional films in 35mm, brand-new movies and documentaries, performances, album releases, funny and improv. The Parkway is one of the few Twin Cities theaters with a 35mm projector (others are the Trylon and the Heights)and they’ll be making full usage of it at a regular weekly motion picture night on Thursdays.Most of the events are online at the well-designed, retro-tinged website.(Love the brand-new Parkway logo design. )We have actually cherry-picked a baker’s half-dozen( it was difficult to stop at 7) to provide a sense of what remains in shop: a thoughtfully curated, smart and eclectic series of events that need to bring people to the theater and the community restaurants and bars. Johnson and Landenberger also bought the adjoining Pepito’s structure to the south; it’s now the Minneapolis place for St. Paul’s well known El Burrito Mercado. The former Adrian’s Tavern to the north is now the Town Hall Tap. And always remember Turtle Bread on the corner of 48th and Chicago, whose Pizza Biga uses complete dinner service.Ticket rates at
