Frank Entertainment Companies Taps Brunswick for Bowling Options at Five New Centers

The Frank Entertainment Companies, developers of the ‘Frank Theatres CineBowl & Grille’ and ‘REVOLUTIONS’ cinema and entertainment complexes has named Brunswick Bowling as its bowling provider of choice. The company’s latest center openings – REVOLUTIONS at Saucon Valley, Pennsylvania, and CineBowl & Grille in Delray Beach, Florida – illustrate the entertainment group’s fast-paced 2013 strategy for growth in the family entertainment, food and beverage, and cinema business industries.

Founded more than a century ago, the Frank Entertainment Companies has grown from a “movie theatre business” to an innovator in entertainment, hospitality, retail and real estate. Frank Theatres, a division of Frank Entertainment Companies introduced the first “talkie movies” to the Philadelphia area, built the first “Twin” theatre in the United States in 1966 and built the nation’s first all stadium all rocking chair seated auditoriums in 1986.

Today, Frank Theatres CineBowl & Grille, IMAX Theatres and REVOLUTIONS provide destinations that bring people together in an atmosphere of casual fun and food combined with convenience and the latest in entertainment technology.

“Brunswick Bowling provides wisdom, industry knowledge and the most state-of-the-art high-tech equipment,” said Bruce Frank, chairman and CEO of Frank Entertainment. “Because they offer top quality products, making the decision to have them as our exclusive partner was an easy one.”

“We’re proud to be a part of Frank Entertainment’s new ‘REVOLUTIONS’ concept at Saucon Valley,” said Eric Lindfors, Brunswick Bowling’s director of new business development. “The new venue provides exceptional recreational and dining options for adults, families and corporate clients. Bowling, of course, as one of the world’s oldest sports, helps add another layer of excitement for visitors at both REVOLUTIONS and Frank Theatres CineBowl & Grille. In Delray Beach, guests can enjoy 16 lanes of bowling as well as the latest movies.”

Both of the new locations feature Frank Entertainment’s signature Red Brick Grille.

In addition, three new REVOLUTIONS are slated to open this fall at Destiny Mall in Syracuse N.Y., at City Place in West Palm Beach, Fla., and in Rock Hill, S.C. near Charlotte, N.C.

These new venues range from 35,000 to 55,000 square feet and offer 20 to 24 lanes of bowling in each, the featured restaurant RED BRICK GRILLE, a sports dining experience at The Stadium and a Vegas-style showroom named REVO LIVE.
