Before hosting moviegoers, the 111,000-square-foot Moolah Temple was home to a colony of pigeons. According to Amy Gill, co-head of the 1913-built temple's restoration team in 2003, the birds were "living in every crack and crevice" among debris, peeling paint, and cracked floors. Thanks to the team's refurbishing, leather couches and love seats, as well as balcony and stadium seating, now adorn the bird-free theater. Moolah Theatre only boasts a single screen, but what it lacks in quantity is made up for in size: its 20-by-45-foot screen showcases everything from the latest Hollywood releases to midnight movie staples such as The Big Lebowski.
Like "The Dude," Moolah Theatre celebrates bowling with eight lanes at its in-house retro alley. Post-flick fun can also include playing billiards, blasting tunes on the StarLink Internet Jukebox, or burping arcade games that ate too many quarters. Some lucky residents even call these amenities home—besides the theater and bowling alley, Moolah Temple makes room upstairs for 40 luxury lofts.
Every Saturday night, hip-hop, rock, and dance music pulsates throughout Show Me Lanes. The commanding soundtrack signals the beginning of cosmic bowling, whose games unfold amidst clouds of fog and rays of black- and laser-lights. During cosmic and regular games alike, balls hurtle down 24 lanes each equipped with automated scoring. Besides daily open-bowl sessions, Show Me Lanes hosts tournaments and leagues for adults and children.
Shrewsbury Lanes' vintage decor—think old-school Brunswick logos hovering above the lanes, set against grill backdrops—is offset by its polished alleys and fully functioning equipment. The result: competition and entertainment in a retro environment where polished lanes send bowling balls at lighting-quick speed toward mocking pins waiting to be crushed. Shrewsbury Lanes also features arcade games, a bar, and TVs broadcasting football games and other entertainment.
At this 9-acre family fun center, orb-tossers young and old drive spheres down 32 glossy lanes, and
miniature-golf enthusiasts putt their way around a desert-themed 18-hole course. Tepees, outcroppings, and an active waterfall cover the pint-size fairways and greens, creating a unique layout that was named
Best Miniature Golf in 2011 by the Riverfront Times.
Nearby, nine batting cages hurl baseballs and softballs at varying speeds, and three sand volleyball courts await bouts of friendly competition. Overlooking the sandy courts, an outdoor deck invites guests to lounge in the sun with casual fare from the cafe. The indoor section pumps jukebox tunes as pool balls sink into the pockets of the billiards table or a passing kleptomaniac.
