We are known across the world as the ultimate multitaskers. We eat while working. We eat while watching TV. We even have an entire industry catering to those who want to eat while driving. So it should come as no surprise that one of the newest trends in dining would be eating meals while at the movies--and the bowling alley.
The 70,000 square foot complex is complete with twelve movie screens with reserved seating, IMAX, a full-serivce indoor/ outdoor restaurant and bar, sixteen lounge-style bowling lanes with big-screen T.V.s, and arcade. Regular 2D movie tickets will set you back $10.50 per person. Bowling goes for $4.50 per person, per lane Fridays and Saturdays after 6:00 pm or $40 per hour with up to 6 people per lane.
The restaurant, the Red Brick Grille, will be serving guests a menu of "classic American" fare. Expect to see things like flatbreads, Asian lettuce wraps, wings, burgers, pastas, pizzas, sandwiches, fish tacos, and baby back ribs. Entrees run from about 10 to 15 bucks.
The complex is to house two bars--one on an outside patio--which will serve signature cocktails and martinis, twenty-four handcrafted beers, and a full selection of liquors.
According to Bruce Frank, President and CEO of Frank Entertainment, a company founded by his grandfather more than a century ago. "It has been a longtime vision to bring this concept to fruition and we anticipate tremendous success in this growing area. With Frank Theatres CineBowl & Grille we offer a true destination designed to bring people together for great food, the newest feature films and all-around fun."
