Presented by AIA Baltimore & AIGA Baltimore as part of Design Month 2017
The Parkway Theatre’s unique architecture and design approach celebrates the building’s 100 years of opulence, decay, and reinvention. The stunning transformation of this grand theater contrasts modern interventions with a century of history, resulting in a ‘rescued ruin’ where layers of the past coexist with the future.


Station North offers a mixture of free street parking, metered parking, and public parking lots in close proximity to the SNF Parkway. Please consult the map for detailed location of lots. If you choose to drive, please allow additional time for parking.
