More than Football…Entertainment
That’s entertainment! Are you looking for more than the typical? If a movie night is what you are looking for, head to the Regal Cinemas (Regal Royal Park Stadium 16) on Archer Road or the Regal Cinema Gainesville Stadium 14 on SW 35th Blvd. The Hippodrome is a must-see at some time during your time in Gainesville, offering live theater, films, gallery exhibits, classes, and special events. The Hippodrome screens first-run foreign, limited-release and avant-garde films.
For bowling, there are three bowling alleys. The Closest is at the Reitz Union which was renovated in Spring 2016. The other two are Splitz which is by the Oaks Mall or Alley Gatorz Bowling Center on Waldo which is much further away. Owned by the same company that operates Splitz, is Funworks which includes roller skating, miniature golf, rock climbing, roller hockey, go-karts, batting cages, and an arcade.
