Another Parkway update

I guess I am a nobody or at least not a regular Parkway customer because I didn’t know until Monday that the Parkway Speakeasy was beset with legal problems as I was writing a follow up story for tomorrow’s Night Owl column in the paper. I say that because the East Bay Express reported that anyone who was a steady freddy at the theater would know all about the operators’ landlord woes that evidently led to a lawsuit and more court action. Apparently, there are a lot of us because even on the Save the Parkway Web site, organizers are still in the dark.  
I guess the Parkway isn’t all Catherine and Kyle Fischer had to worry about. If there’s a don’t talk clause involved in the legal action fine. Otherwise they need to come clean and talk openly about the financial troubles in both locations. That way, the community that treasures both cinemas could show (could have shown) their love in dollars and sense.
