Two More Parkway Deals Fall Through; Theater Still Looking for a New Home

Much gnashing of teeth has occurred over the Parkway Theater‘s persistent state of closure, and it’s not about to end anytime soon. That’s news to Parkway fans who have been waiting for all year to hear that J. Moses Ceaser, the Oakland entrepreneur who has made a noble mission of reopening the revered theater, had finally signed a lease. Somewhere. Anywhere. But as of yesterday afternoon, the latest is this: Not one, not two, but three potential deals seem to have fallen apart. Now Ceaser’s back on the street, $415,000 in seed money in hand, just looking for a place to spend it.
