Help Gussy Up the New Parkway!

Dear New Parkway Backers--when 998 of you helped kick off the drive to reopen the Parkway more than four years ago, you were some of the first Kickstarter pioneers.  Now, four years later, not only is the theater you funded open but we're on our third crowdfunded project, this time raising 20K to improve some of the theater's furnishings.  Please consider learning more about this Kickstarter and becoming a backer:

Thanks again for your continued support of the New Parkway Theater.


You Helped Us Once...Want to Help Again?


Hi Kickstarter Backers--thanks to your help, we were able to open up a pretty wonderful theater that we hope you've had the chance to enjoy.  Now we're raising a second round of funding to put up our facade.  We hope that you'll consider supporting us once again.  We've got a bunch of goodies and we're doing good things, be it serving high-quality food, drink, and programming, paying living wages, and actively giving back to the local community.  Please help us take this next important step.  Donate today!

Thanks again for your continued support!
