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.

THE AMAZING JOHNATHAN DOCUMENTARY begins as a profile on a uniquely deranged magician who built a career out of shock and deception in the 1980s but becomes the bizarre story about the unravelling of his documentarian.
The Amazing Johnathan with his irreverent magic act, rose, to popularity landing one of the longest residencies in Las Vegas. However in 2014 Johnathan was diagnosed with a terminal heart condition and given only one year to live, forcing him to retire his act. Fast forward to three years later, Johnathan is still alive and chooses to return to the stage. Filmmaker Ben Berman sets out to capture The Amazing Johnathan’s comeback tour while peeling back the curtain on his unique, meth-fueled life.
But the seemingly straightforward profile of this eccentric illusionist starts careening off the rails as Johnathan drops a bombshell that sends the film spiraling into uncertainty. As we delve deeper to determine what’s real and what’s illusion, hard questions are raised, uncovering deeper truths about the ethics of filmmaking and human nature.
