New Santikos complex features 16 lanes of bowling

May 22, 2013

San Antonio, TX-based Santikos Theatres has added a new diversion at its latest location, the Santikos Palladium AVX in Houston. Movie fans there can take in a film as well as a few frames of bowling as part of a full line-up of entertainment options.

“To couple a theatre with bowling makes sense, and it’s our mission to offer something for everyone from 2 to 102 years old,” says marketing manager Chris Prichard. “The Palladium’s ‘Olympic Lanes’ offers 16 lanes of bowling, four of which can be reserved for parties or private events. We’ve installed customized Brunswick AnvilaneTM synthetic lanes to resemble white granite for a very ancient Greek feel, as a nod to the founding family’s Greek heritage.”

The Houston Palladium AVX is an 180,000-square-foot entertainment destination with 22 stadium-style theatres featuring premium AVX projection, multiple cafés, bars, a VIP seating area with in-theatre dining, and more. Six of the theatres have 80-foot AVX MAX screens.

Santikos Theatres is the largest family-owned and operated theatre circuit in Texas, founded by Louis Santikos in 1911. The circuit presently operates seven theatres in San Antonio and two in Houston.
