Film Screenings

Save The Date: Tuesday December 12th – 7pm & 9pm
‘Immediate Family,’ Denny Tedesco’s Follow-Up to ‘The Wrecking Crew’
“Immediate Family”, a tremendous documentary directed by Denny Tedesco, tells the true story of some legendary session musicians in the 70s who changed the course of musical history 🎸
That earlier film, which Magnolia also released, followed the first wave of studio musicians in the ’60s. “Immediate Family” takes up the story where “The Wrecking Crew” ended, taking a deep dive through some of the most famous and influential session musicians from the 1970s.
To that end, the new documentary includes commentary from the likes of Carole King, James Taylor, Linda Ronstadt, David Crosby, Jackson Browne, Lyle Lovett, Keith Richards, Don Henley, Stevie Nicks, and Phil Collins.

Iron Claw (2023) – Opens 1/12/24

Owners and Operators of Parkway Theater/ Film Lounge


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.
