Parkwood Cinema 3

The Parkwood Cinema 3 was opened by United Artists Theatres in the early-1990’s. This cinema had a short life closing in the late-1990’s. The building is still standing, and looking very much like a cinema, just boarded up.

Any further information on the Parkwood Cinema would be appreciated.

I’m not sure what year Parkwood opened but it was definitely around in the 70s and 80s. This was the main theater my parents took me to all during the 80s. I saw The Neverending Story and The Goonies there. Pretty sure we saw The Last Starfighter at that theater. It was a great place. It was more the “family” theater with the four screener across town being the one that teenagers hung out at on weekends.

Definitely around in the ‘70s. I lived in Griffin from 1972 to 1975 and went to this theater nearly every Saturday. They played The Carpenters before the movie started, and to this day that music reminds me of this theater. on May 4, 2016 at 1:36 pm

My father was friends with Jimmy Goolsby, who started the Parkwood, and much of my family worked there when they were in high school in the 70s. It was a single screen originally but I do not remember when it was converted. I will discuss with my family this weekend.

I saw Close Encounters there since my brother was managing the theater at the time.
