Peek Inside the Parkway build-out
Originally opened on September 23, 1925, the Parkway Theater was a modern marvel of its time, clad in the Twenties' finest deco architecture; but the past decade hasn't been very glamorous for the theatre, as the building has been empty since 2009.
Fortunately, a new 'roaring 20's' promises to be a reality, with a new look and a new purpose for the Oakland icon. In 2019 the City of Oakland granted approval to operate a cannabis dispensary in the building, and we immediately began work on plans to restore and revitalize the theatre.
Our team is no stranger to restorative retail, our previous dispensary Telegraph Health Center (THC), opened in 2014 in the refurbished Chapel of the Oaks, a former mortuary and 85-year old architectural icon that had sat vacant for a decade. Until January 2019, THC operated as a medical dispensary, offering relief to community members in need and providing a source for positive change within the neighborhood.
Just like THC, we believe that the chance to invest in the landscape of the community is worth much more than just finding a spot and putting up a coat of paint.
The Parkway will initially re-open as the flagship location for the Ivy Hill cannabis dispensary brand, and will later re-open the theatre and other areas of the building to offer live entertainment, food service, a community art space, and a consumption lounge.
