Philadelphia native Samuel Frank founded the Frank Family Entertainment Group in 1906. Fifteen years later, the company introduced talkies to the City of Brotherly Love. Since those humble origins in the movie-theater business, the company has ventured into the development and ownership of shopping centers, restaurants, and other venues, including the upscale Frank Theatres CineBowl & Grille and Revolutions entertainment complexes.
At both Frank Theatres CineBowl & Grille and Revolutions, groups gather at glossy lanes to partake in rounds of bowling just like their colorfully shoed forefathers. In between frames, they can catch the game, music videos, or a movie on overhead big-screen TVs. What makes the Frank Theatres CineBowl & Grille locations stand out is when crowds settle into comfortable chairs at the movie theater, which shows blockbusters and other first-run pictures. And the nearby grille doles out drinks, pub-style entrees like burgers and sandwiches, and bowling-alley standbys such as nachos and pizza.
