Keenly aware of Lancaster’s need for a space celebrating the city's vibrant art community, a group of determined artists and citizens banded together in 1965 to found the Goethean Hall Gallery of Art, nestled amid Franklin and Marshall College. Though the art gallery has changed venues and names, the original vision of its founders—to provide visitors with the “best available art”—remains unchanged. Rechristened as the Lancaster Museum of Art (LMA), the museum now resides in the historic Grubb mansion, and boasts diverse exhibits and events for the public. The mansion’s 4,000 square feet of galleries and porticos plays host to an ever-changing lineup of awe-inspiring art, as well as a permanent collection composed of paintings from a roster of Lancaster’s homegrown artists, including Hugh Fitzgerald, Abby Rudisill, and Ellen Slupe. LMA also fosters an artistic dialogue with the community through numerous education programs that introduce the next generation to the ins and outs of the creative process.

Allen Theatre, named one of Moviefone's 12 best local theaters in America in 2010, regales moviegoers with first-run Hollywood features and independent films from within a century-old building festooned with vintage movie posters. Local art complements the theater's art-deco style, which adds a classic feel to modern amenities including a Dolby Digital EX sound system, state-of-the-art projection lenses, and an advanced spoiler-alert system. Enveloped by the buttery scents that waft from a large popcorn, moviegoers will venture into the single-screen theater and feast anxious eyes on a current feature film or films of yesteryear, such as Wall Street showing November 15. Although not included with today's Groupon, viewings can be followed by a stop at MJ's Coffeehouse, where deli sandwiches, soups, and gourmet coffees help to fuel patrons and their automobiles, provided they run on gourmet coffees.

When the overhead lights go down at Colony Park Lanes, it doesn’t always mean it's time to go home. On Friday and Saturday evenings, it signals the start of Glow Bowling, preparing pin pummelers for a night of heart-pumping beats, black lights, fog, and glow-in-the-dark lanes that lasts until 1 a.m. It's just one of many things that draws families to the 32-lane alley, which also boasts a game room and full lounge with five big-screen TVs. Daytime games invite bowlers to roll strikes under traditional lighting as 180-inch above-lane projection screens play music videos and sports coverage, saving visitors the trouble of interviewing their own bowling balls. The center also welcomes kids for birthday parties that include unlimited frames, pizza or hot dogs, and balloon party favors, and can equip lanes with optional bumpers to ensure youngsters have an even playing field at all times.

The alley is open throughout the week, hosting open bowling, leagues for all ages, and weekend Glow Bowl sessions. A fully stocked pro shop equips visitors with ball-resurfacing systems, oil extractors, and sleeves of extra balls to replace those that get lost in the alley's challenging water hazards.
