Movies. Bowling. Arcade. Oh My!

Looking for something new to do this weekend? Look no further than Ankeny 12 & B-Roll Bowling in The District at Prairie Trail in Ankeny. Movies, bowling, an arcade, dining and drinks…take your pick, or pick them all! The new luxury entertainment center has a slate of amenities. Diverse entertainment options for the whole family under a single roof.


Signature Movie Theatres

If movies are your thing — and let’s be honest, who doesn’t love them? — you’ll never view them the same after visiting Ankeny 12. It has cutting edge technology in all 12 theatres, including digital surround sound and wall-to-wall curved screens, providing a completely immersive movie-going experience. All while enjoying your reserved, reclining and heated leather seat.

In select auditoriums, you’ll also find MX4D, the next evolution in cinema. You will feel all the action in this 4D cinema experience, which provides a totally immersive environment where you actually “feel” the action on the screen from the built-in motion and effects in the seats and the theatre around you. You’ll experience all the excitement through motion, leg ticklers, neck and face blasts, back pokes, fans, strobes, fog, rain and scent. You’ve got to try it to believe how real it all can feel!

Families with young children will love the revolutionary screenPLAY! theatre. Here, kids are king! The theatre features kid colors — vibrant seats and wall coverings. When guests arrive, children can get all of their energy out before the movie begins in a screen-side play area for toddlers, and a full-size climbing playground, complete with slide, for bigger kids. After the 30-minute play block is over, guests take their seats, the lights go down and the family feature begins.

More Than Movies

If you aren’t in the mood for a movie, or before and after you take one in, there are other entertaining options. The brand new B-Roll Bowling features 12 lanes of fun. You are welcome to enjoy cocktails, apps or dinner while you bowl. And just down the hall is Outtakes Arcade, full of interactive arcade games for kids of all ages. Play for fun and prizes!

If you work up an appetite, step in to the Marquee Bar and Grille, a full-service restaurant for over 130 guests. There you’ll find wine, beer, cocktails and delicious extended menu options like mozzarella sticks, gourmet burgers, chicken tenders, chicken sandwiches, pizzas and flatbreads, onion rings, funnel cake fries, and more. Or for concession stand fare, you’ll find fresh popcorn, nachos, hot dogs, cotton candy, self-serve candy and soft drinks.

So this weekend, should you hear someone in your household lament, “There is nothing to do!” pack the whole family into the car and head to Ankeny 12 & B-Roll Bowling, where there is no being bored allowed! For more information on Ankeny 12 & B-Roll Bowling, visit their Facebook page here.
