Riviera Theatre is a newly renovated artifact of the 1920s that illuminates silver screens with independent or hard-to-find movies. Cinephiles can choose from a variety of upcoming features, which include The Other Woman with Academy Award winning Natalie Portman, and Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead, which follows a man battling morbid obesity by only drinking fruit and vegetable juice. Platonic partners can sip on sodas and share a large bucket of popcorn that's lightly buttered so hands can slip out of awkwardly long handshakes. Amidst ornate molding and golden lighting salvaged from Riviera's vaudeville days, viewers enjoy films amplified in 5.1 digital surround sound within a 370-seat auditorium.

With 18 sparkling lanes, fully automatic scoring, a pro shop, and a full bar and grill, Rainbow Lanes entices rollers of all ages to enjoy a classic pastime in a timeless environment. Quartets of bowlers lace up rented kicks before lobbing giant marbles down slicked-up lanes, with gutters guarded by optional bumpers to aid beginners and those writing dissertations on ricochets. While crashing through cliques of pins, groups can slake hungers with slices of a gooey two-topping pizza, great for pairing with conversations about celebratory dance techniques and sips from a pitcher of soda or beer.

Airway Lanes Fun Center's roots stretch back to 1958, when it opened as a 24-lane bowling alley but today this multifaceted amusement center has far surpassed what its original owners conceived. Bowling is still the lifeblood of the place, from the 39-lane traditional alley to the private eight-lane suite, which features its own bar, TVs, and plush couches for private parties of up to 75 people or just one guy who wants a place to nap in peace.

Beyond bowling, guests can hit the arcade, play laser tag, or try to best the laser maze—a game where participants must maneuver through a room filled with laser tripwires without touching any of the beams. Outdoors, families can hone their putting on the mini-golf course or speed around the Go-Kart track.

Formula K Family Fun Park kick-starts visitors' adrenaline with a suite of family-friendly activities. The play palace rivets racers with 45 mph Grand Prix go-karts ($2.50/lap), or oval and road courses ($5/five minutes) as well as junior-racer options for budding speedsters ages 5–10 ($5/five minutes). Practice putting precision during 18 holes of mini golf ($5/person) or use the clubs to thwack treats from the snack bar into friends' mouths. Groups of 10 or more may reserve one of the park's paintball fields ($15 field fee, $15 for a marker rental) to pelt opponents with colorful paint pellets ($20/1,000 rounds). At the park's arcade, gamers slot tokens into more than 85 coin-op arcade machines while drumming up the courage to ask for Ms. Pacman's phone number.
