A Message from the SNF Parkway Theatre and Maryland Film Festival
about COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Dear Members and Supporters of the MdFF and SNF Parkway Community,
Your safety and well-being continues to be our highest priority. The Parkway is temporarily closed in accordance with the State of Maryland Governor Hogan’s executive order and mandated closure of all movie theaters, restaurants, entertainment venues and places where 10 or more gather throughout the state. We look forward to reopening online and hope you will take the opportunity to enjoy the wonderful selection of films and programs we are offering with our distribution and community partners online.
We are regularly monitoring and responding to the rapidly evolving situation with the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, as it is challenging to predict the impact of this pandemic. Out of an abundance of caution, the Parkway Theatre will also receive a deep cleaning before patrons and staff return.
Please follow and connect with us online and on social media. If you have a question, please email
Thank you for your understanding and for being a vital and vibrant part of the Parkway Theatre and MdFF community
Sandra L. Gibson
Executive Director
