News About This Theater
Located in the Parkview Shopping Center at the corner of Reynolds Park Road and Waughtown Street, the Parkview Theatre opened was the last of the single screen movie houses that were built around Winston-Salem. Owned and operated by Schneider-Merl Theatres, the Parkview Theatre opened on August 23, 1972 with the exclusive engagement showing of “Cabaret” starring Liza Minnelli. The seating capacity was 700. By April 26, 1974, the Parkview Theatre’s auditorium was split down the middle, creating a twin screen cinema, under the new ownership of Martin Theatres and re-named Parkview Theatres 1 & 2.
By the mid-1980’s, the Parkview Twin changed its format from showing first-run movies to become a discount movie house under Carmike Cinemas, until its closing on January 16, 1992.
