The Parkway hasn't gone anywhere, but it's sure as heck not showing movies. This leaves an opening in the Park St. film scene. Recognizing as much, tonight at 7:30 p.m., the Oakland Merchants' Leadership Forum will host an outdoor screening of Space Jam (the 1996 animated film starring Michael Jordan and Bugs Bunny) directly across the street from the shuttered theater. The film will be preceded by live music and native dance. All you gotta provide is a blanket or lawn chair. It ain't the Parkway, but it'll have to do -- and the event should provide colorful proof of continued demand for a reopened Parkway.
