The Stavros Niarchos Foundation Parkway Theatre is a stunning space to host your special presentation, conference, screening event, fundraiser, or speaking engagement!
The Parkway has stood at the corner of Charles and North for over a century (c.1915), and served Baltimore cinema-lovers thousands of films from the silent era into the 1970s. Baltimore boasted many fine theaters built to present motion pictures prior to The Parkway, but for its size and beauty it has always been a rare gem.
Since the late 1970's, the Parkway sat dormant for many years. In February of 2016, construction and renovation began on the MdFF Stavros Niarchos Foundation Parkway, with project management from Seawall Development, construction by Southway Builders, and a design honoring the Parkway’s many layers of history by architects Ziger/Snead. The SNF Parkway was made possible through a generous $5 million lead gift from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, key support from the State of Maryland, additional important donations from foundations, corporations and individuals, and the special partnership in place with both Johns Hopkins University and MICA. The revitalized Parkway and newly constructed adjacent buildings, together comprising a 3-screen film complex, opened to the public on May 3, 2017.
