Frank Theatres opened its CineBowl & Grille in Delray Beach, complete with 12 movie screens, a full-service restaurant and bar, and 16 bowling lanes.
"It's the wow factor," said owner Bruce Frank. "Fifty-foot ceilings in the lobby with chandeliers."
CineBowl & Grille opened last week at 14775 Lyons Road. Frank, a third generation theatre owner, said bigger is always better.
"This theatre has 400 seats and a digital-surround experience," he said.
"This is brilliant," said Tony Sabia. "You can go bowling, you can have dinner, go see a movie. It is a whole evening."
"Our mantra is, 'Relax, your seat is waiting,'" said Frank.
CineBowl & Grille offers reserved seating online.
"This is where the screen is and these are all the seating. You literally only have to tap it and this will pick your seat," said Frank.
CineBowl & Grille also has food, beer, and wine delivered to your seat.
"You will be able to order on your phone. We are having a new application done," said Frank.
After the movie, customers can eat at The Red Brick Grille, a full-service restaurant and bar.
Delray Beach residents are excited about the new complex.
"Living in Delray Beach, it seems if you want to go out, you either have to go downtown with the tourists or to Boynton," said Sabia. "So now we have somewhere local."
