Information for this tour was contributed by Patrick Chambers.

The Parkway is generally considered to be the beginning of the multiplex, operated by the Durwood chain (which would become the now-giant AMC). It was located at the Ward Parkway Shopping Center, now home to the AMC Ward Parkway 22, and was located in roughly the same part of the mall as the current (much larger) multiplex.
