Pour Yourself into History 2020 Schedule

September 17


1825 Abrams Parkway #1 | Dallas 75214

Join us for Pour Yourself into History to hear the history of the iconic Lakewood Theater turned bowling alley and lounge, and celebrate North Texas Giving Day with us!

Bowlski’s is located in the historic Lakewood Theater and is recognized as an official City of Dallas Landmark.  The theater opened in 1938 and after its closing in 2015, the Spivey’s jumped at the opportunity to bring this neighborhood treasure back to life.  Craig and Jennifer Spivey are longtime residents of Lakewood and had a dream to “retain all the history” of the building they could.  With 10 lanes, a restaurant, bar, arcade and candy shop Bowlski’s has brought vibrant life back to the Lakewood Theater.
