JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) – There’s a new place to bowl, watch movies and eat in Fondren. Highball Lanes, The Pearl and The Capri Theatre have been a 14-year project in the making.
The bowling alley officially opened on Tuesday.
“This was the last undeveloped commercial real estate in Fondren, and a lot of people have come before us to make this neighborhood really cool, and we’re excited to be a part of that,” Robert St. John, a partner on the Capri Theatre Complex project.
The Capri Theatre first opened in the 1930s. The building now has 178 luxury recliners and a Dolby sound system.
The new Spider-Man movie will be shown inside of the theatre on Saturday.
