This place was still open when I first came to southern California in 1983. I think I only bowled there once. The main attraction for my friends and I was the coffee shop that, for a time, had good food and tons of vintage charm (although it was obviously fading and crumbling quickly). One could easily tell it was probably one heck of a place in the 50s and early 60s. As demographics changed in the area, not enough people were interested in bowling to keep the place open. The building is still there and mostly unchanged but it now houses The City of Knowledge Islamic School.
