Welcome to Pittsburgh’s first Movie Theater, Brewery and 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 Brewing and 45 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.

Echo in the Canyon – July 12th – 18th
Echo in the Canyon celebrates the explosion of popular music that came out of LA’s Laurel Canyon in the mid-60s as folk went electric and The Byrds, The Beach Boys, Buffalo Springfield and The Mamas and the Papas gave birth to the California Sound. It was a moment (1965 to 1967) when bands came to LA to emulate The Beatles and Laurel Canyon emerged as a hotbed of creativity and collaboration for a new generation of musicians who would soon put an indelible stamp on the history of American popular music.
Featuring Jakob Dylan, the film explores the Laurel Canyon scene via never-before-heard personal details behind the bands and their songs and how that music continues to inspire today. Echo in the Canyon contains candid conversations and performances with Brian Wilson (The Beach Boys), Michelle Phillips (The Mamas and the Papas), Stephen Stills (Buffalo Springfield), David Crosby (The Byrds), Roger McGuinn (The Byrds) their contemporaries Ringo Starr, Eric Clapton, Graham Nash and slightly younger followers Jackson Browne and Tom Petty (in his last film interview) as well as contemporary musicians influenced by their music such as Beck, Fiona Apple, Cat Power, Regina Spektor and Norah Jones.
“A richly evocative and entertainingly anecdotal overview of the 1960s Laurel Canyon music scene and its influence on contemporary artists.”
“By keeping things short, sweet and dutifully tuneful, ‘Echo in the Canyon’ is like the doc version of one of the period’s sonic nuggets, leaving you with a peace/love/understanding high and a desire to break out the vinyl for more of the same.”
– The Los Angeles Times
“Music industry vet and first-time filmmaker Andrew Slater leverages his extensive connections to coax many luminaries of the era on camera, effortlessly interviewed by singer-songwriter Jakob Dylan of the Wallflowers. Rich with revealing observations and engaging anecdotes, Slater’s documentary skirts the nostalgia trap by entertainingly connecting with an impressive lineup of contemporary singer-songwriters referencing the influential ’60s pop style with their own releases.”
