New Parkway Theater = Food & Beer/etc. while watching Assaulted. I already went to the SF showing but with this being at the Parkway, I may have to see it again.

Also, will there be an Oaklander sighting?

There is likely to be an Oaklander sighting.

Still on, and the parkway is a great venue, sofa seats and you can get beer and pizza while watching the movie

I'm trying to raise the troops for this showing. I hope others are doing the same. I'll be purchasing my block of tix in the next couple of days.

This is great news. I know that area well and although it is downtown Oakland it is very a new upcoming neighborhood that is being re-gentrified ( art galleries, hip coffee shops, great food, it is where the "first Friday/ Art murmur" block-party event takes place every month in Oakland ).
plenty of paid parking at the large Douglas parking lot ( off of Broadway ), right down the street from the theater or there are usually even some street spots available.
This is the new Parkway theater's new location directly across from the "Koreana" Korean supermarket ( great fried spicy chicken to go ), right around the corner from the "Stork club" bar ( a "hella" fun burlesque show, but not on the 10th ).
I hope to see you all there!

Concur with seal, if folks aren't comfortable with the parking, I live about 10 min walking distance away with better parking options.

C'mon folks. Let's buy up those tickets and get this place sold out.

Buy one for a friend.
Buy early.
Buy often.

haiedras, it will be good to see you again.

You are taking a big risk going to Oakland after dark. There is no good neighborhood there......no artsy neighborhood or anything. I work the streets there nightly. I know.

1. Your fears are unfounded.
2. It's still light out at 9PM

How about you buy a ticket and join us. Should be fun.

C'mon folks. I need 56 more people to buy tickets. Only 3 days left.

I clicked on the New Parkway Theater link and discovered that the address is 474 24th St. I was thinking it was at the old Parkway on Park Blvd near Lake Merritt.

See you there.

We are trying to pack the theaters with the understanding that a high level of interest (ticket sales) is the key to broader distribution of the film. Your comment is a good one and that is why everyone should take along, or convince to go, as many people as they can who are fence-sitters.

Exactly. I completely understand that Oakland can appear to be a war zone, and I am definitely not saying you should walk around in condition white, but we're not talking about a showing in the favelas either.

Dunn, that was the old parkway that closed, I'm really excited that they reopened it.

I parked in that parking lot, a "Douglas" lot right down the street located on 24th Street the same street as the movie theater my guess is about 50 yards away for over 2 years overnight and walked around that neighborhood all times both day and night without any issues whatsoever.
I would like to think that most people here are aware of their environments, have good situational awareness and it is only a 2 hour movie that will be done before 9 o'clock on a Wednesday night. not really a big party drunken scene where trouble is to be expected and avoided.
please, don't get me wrong I do understand ( even if I do not agree with ) other calgunners heartfelt warnings in all the threads about the Oakland showing of the "Assaulted" movie,
but this is the type of independent theater that if the movie does well they will show it repeatedly throughout the year.

Help us educate others and help yourself have a great night, and be there.

Don't try. Do.

Bring your trivia people. And next week do 2A trivia.

Example of your first question: Which court was the first to incorporate the Second Amendment against the States?

Hint: The winning lawyer is in the movie.

I'm always amazed at how many people can show up at the gun show at the Cow Palace and spend a lot of money and not getting much in return.
Then when something like this comes along no one even wants to give it a try and have some fun with some great people hanging out watching a movie for 2 hours on a Wednesday night.

People in the Bay Area please get a ticket or a few for you and your friends to come on down and have a good night. if you can't go give them away or give them away here on the "want to give" thread.

I apologize if I sound like a broken record, but when was the last time you saw a pro 2nd amendment movie at a theater...
yeah that's what I thought NEVER.
. And it might never happen again unless we all step up.
People complain that we're not trying of different things to get people educated the anti's and the undecided to be on our side. Here it is and no one wants to join in.

Take a moment and think it through and even if you can't go or afford the tickets please leave a comment so this thread gets bumped to the top.
Thank you.
