Parkway Theatre – Baltimore – A few pics to Share
With the Centre Theatre getting new life, there’s alot of talk about the fate of the Parkway Theatre, just across the street and a block to the West. I thought I had a few old “Proofs” for the Parkway and Mayfair as well, but I haven’t been able to locate them (yet). Did find a few old pictures however. The still ( above ) was damaged over the years, with the top part of the building rotted away ( on the picture that is ) . I did manage to scan it and saved the entranceway and most of the marquee. This photo is circa 1942.
Circa 1949 – North Avenue and North Charles Street. Promo photograph from the collection of John Kilduff and Patricia Paul.
A look at the front of the Parkway Theatre right after it was built.
Going into the 1980’s, the Parkway as the Five West. It had closed a few years earlier.
