Just a rumor though.
Where did you hear that? I guess that's not a bad location.

According to the mayor, you will never see a real movie theater come downtown just as long as the Camelot remains open. No IMAX could be included either due to Simpsonville's.

In my old Brooklyn, NY neighborhood, they recently opened a shuffleboard club: Royal Palms Shuffleboard Club. They have a bar so it is aimed at the 21+ crowd. No food service, but they have arrangements with the local food trucks who park in their lot. It's sort of a take off on the ping pong clubs that opened in NYC a few years ago. They even have a shuffleboard league.

For all ages, what about some outdoor ping pong tables or shuffleboard courts near Falls Park? Not sure how you would keep track of the ping pong balls and rackets though - maybe a little tent where you check them out....

This is a great idea! We need more interactive instead of passive entertainment options that are unique and creative. Stuff you won't find in other places.

I heard this as well. Could be cool with the new Universal Joint next store.

That's a shame bc DT Greenville could most likely support a 12 screen megaplex type theater. It did wonders for downtown Orlando which needed something other than restaurants, bars, and clubs for people to partake in on the regular.

I mean museums and such are nice, but even the best ones don't provide enough change in entertainment that a movie theater does, especially for the DT residents.

I agree and it's what I was thinking of.

Why would the city be protecting certain businesses? Isn't that kind of anti-competitive?

I would love to see Cinebarre open a location in Greenville. I've been to the one in Asheville, and I really liked it. For those that haven't heard of it, Cinebarre is a movie theatre that also offers a full-service menu, including beer and wine. The food at their Asheville location was good when I've had it in the past...burgers, pizza, etc., but a step up from the food you usually get at the movies. Also, the cool thing is that you can order the food while watching the movie without having to leave your seat (thus, not having to miss any of the movie), and they will bring the food to you.

They were discussing the idea of expanding to Greenville a few years back, but I'm not sure if those plans fell through.

What a cool idea! Their Instagram page has a lot of fun photos. I could definitely see something similar do well downtown.
