“Sasquatch Sunset” (2024)
A year in the life of a unique family. It captures the daily life of the Sasquatch with a level of detail and rigor that is simply unforgettable.
Rated R (for some sexual content, full nudity and bloody images.) | Action
In the misty forests of North America, a family of Sasquatches—possibly the last of their enigmatic kind— embark on an absurdist, epic, hilarious, and ultimately poignant journey over the course of one year. These shaggy and noble giants fight for survival as they find themselves on a collision course with the ever-changing world around them. Starring Riley Keough and Jesse Eisenberg, acclaimed directors David and Nathan Zellner (Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter) bring you the greatest Bigfoot story ever told.

Welcome to Pittsburgh’s first Movie Theater, Brewery, full service Bar/Lounge housed under one roof!

We decided to bring a new kind of entertainment experience to Pittsburgh: think movie theater meets bar and brewery. It’s everything you need for a fun night out, and it’s all under one roof. Not only do we show a selection of independent films and documentaries, but we also host live events, like stand-up comedy, music, and open mic nights. Our film lounge has teamed up with Abjuration Brewing to bring you local craft beer. Plus, we offer a range of expertly crafted cocktails, too! This is what nightly entertainment is supposed to be.

The Parkway Theater/Film Lounge is OPEN for Happy Hour, sports games and short run film screenings. We can’t wait for you to experience the Film Lounge, Abjuration Brewing45 seat theater screening room!…..

We want the Parkway Theater to be the definitive cinema of choice for film lovers and filmmakers alike. The Parkway Theater will get you excited about learning more about the films you see, showing a variety of new domestic independent films, documentaries and foreign films. Come celebrate ideas and promote the appreciation and understanding of film.

We hope to see you all here. Watch your inbox for updates.
