• PARKWAY OF BROKEN DREAMS - Official Teaser Trailer

    121 views 1 day ago
    These days, the stretch of Maryland Parkway from Flamingo Road to Tropicana Avenue in Las Vegas is sharply divided between its west and east sides. On the west side sits the ever-growing, increasingly contemporary UNLV campus.

    On the east side, however, decades-old shopping centers with little more in common than their aging exteriors and interiors are strewn across the parkway. Aside from a smattering of chain eateries attracting students across the street to grab quick lunch during weekdays, those walking the sidewalks are less likely to be coeds than they are to be derelicts, residents of the surrounding neighborhoods or bus riders biding time between routes

    More than 20 years ago, Maryland Parkway was the center of cultural activity in Las Vegas. Independently owned coffee shops filled up with academics and intellectuals. A top-grade record store served as the premier destination for local musicologists. Bars and clubs buzzed with live music, flowing taps and warm bodies.

    And then, almost seemingly overnight, it all just … disappeared. By the turn of the century, the coffeehouses and record stores had shuttered, the art galleries moved downtown, and the street scene became a distant memory.

    Through archival footage and interviews with business owners, journalists, musicians, artists and scenesters from that era, director Pj Perez tells the story of how alternative culture on Maryland Parkway was born, thrived, and, eventually, faded away.
