The Parkway Theatre’s unique architecture and design approach celebrates the building’s 100 years of opulence, decay, and reinvention. The stunning transformation of this grand theater purposefully contrasts modern design interventions with a century of history, resulting in a ‘rescued ruin’ where layers of the past coexist with the future.
