A new family entertainment center has opened today, Feb. 1, in the former home of the historic Falls Theater in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. According to the Akron Beacon Journal, it took more than two years to convert the building into The Workz, an arcade-anchored entertainment destination.
“It definitely was a long process, but we are thrilled with the way everything came out,” said Tim Frankish, co-owner and director of marketing and entertainment for the new FEC. The theater, built in the 1920s, definitely has a 2020s vibe with VR games and the latest arcade and pinball machines.
However, there’s also that 1920s charm and some 1980s-era video games like Space Invaders. To truly span the decades, there’s also a movie projector from the 1960s on display next to the main bar. Learn more at www.playattheworkz.com.
