Our "My Spot" series shares personal experiences with special places in California
Avery Trufelman knows movies. In high school, she would watch a film at the end of every day. In college, she worked as a projectionist.
So when Avery walked into Oakland's New Parkway Theater, "I just felt so at home. It feels like you're going into a friend's living room."
That's because the theater is designed like an actual living room, replete with comfy couches and an adjacent kitchen.
"The food is really good, too," Trufelman says. "The cool thing is, you can sit in the theater and order something from your seat and they'll deliver it to you."
