Hawthorne Theater opened in 1928, making it one of the first movie houses established in the area. And though at almost 90 years of age the space is older than most buildings in North America, it's recently undergone major renovations to keep up with modern technology. According to an interview with owner Jack Sayegh at NorthJersey.com, the fully digital five-screen cinema was outfitted with new carpeting and chairs, Real D and 3-D movie equipment, Dolby Surround Sound in all theaters, and human ticket-takers to replace the outdated robot ones. The article also cites that the theater?which has been independently owned since 1980?is maintained by Jack's father, uncle, and cousin, reinforcing its family-friendly nature.

Bowling is the great social equalizer—a common ground where grizzled undercover clowns, blue-collar English lords, LARPer librarians, big and tall lingerie models, hordes of hive-minded hipsters, and the other two social demographics that comprise America can unite in common cause and topple a gaggle of stuck-up, inanimate wooden pins. Brunswick has been a household name in this egalitarian pastime almost since the beginning, with a company history that dates back to the 19th century, providing classic American good times to all manner of patrons across the country. And with today's Groupon tying the room together, you'll get to play two games (up to a $10.98 value) in its hallowed halls wearing a pair of freshly disinfected bowling shoes (up to a $4.49 value).

After stealthily zapping foes with focused beams and busting piles of pins, patrons can hone real-world skills with a trip to the arcade, working on hand-eye coordination with a game of skee-ball, cataloging new breeds of waterfowl in a round of Wacky Ducks, and helping Donkey Kong register for community-college classes.

That luminous glow around which everyone is gathered is not a campfire, and no one is telling stories. Still, they're communing just the same as the do battle with and against one another in Entertainment on Wheels' video-game café. A row of wide-screen HD TVs casts that glow, not a jar full of fireflies, and they flicker with images of the exciting multiplayer Xbox and Wii games. Up to 20 players can engage at the same time, competing in games of Mario Kart, matching moves during bouts of Just Dance, or ducking and running in Halo battles. Party planners can reserve the café for birthday celebrations that can include pizza and cupcakes, as well as visits from Mario and Luigi themselves. Beyond the café, the mobile unit travels to party sites to entertain guests with interactive play.
