The New Parkway Sets Its Sights off Park Blvd.


Despite earlier optimism from a group hell-bent on reopening Oakland’s revered theater, things aren’t looking too hot for the Parkway. At a community meeting last night at Rooz Café, just a few doors down from the theater on Park Boulevard, The New Parkway’s J. Moses Ceaser shared the awful truth: Lease negotiations with building owner Yan Cheng have stalled in recent weeks, even backpedaled. “Every day that passes, I’m a bit more pessimistic about us getting a lease,” he told the assembled crowd of about thirty investors and community members, many of whom lived nearby in the Eastlake neighborhood.
