In the most recent of our many articles and blog posts on the ever-engrossing Parkway Theater saga over the last few years, we explained that if Moses Ceaser of The New Parkway isn’t able to find a home for the theater by December 31, he may well dissolve the outfit.
Ceaser has dedicated countless hours to reopening Oakland’s beloved theater over the past eighteen months, and has represented the best — and, in many ways, the only — shot at resurrecting the theater in its former image. The Oakland resident has also proven that he has the city’s best interests at heart, and has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars from supporters who have rallied behind the Parkway cause. Yet the critical piece of the puzzle, a place to invest that money, has remained elusive. Dissolution of The New Parkway would be a huge loss for Oakland, impacting both its business community and its culture. But that’s exactly what may happen if Ceaser isn’t able to nail down a home for the Parkway in the next three weeks.
See Ceaser’s most recent letter to his email list below. His contact information is included at the end.
