Opening June 1st
Emagine Entertainment, Inc., an innovator in luxury theatres, has announced that the Emagine Batavia movie theatre, slated to open June 1, 2023, will offer a luxury high roller room experience for guests. In addition to the 12 state-of-the art auditoriums, there will be a High Roller Room which will include a full-service bar, shuffleboard, video games, pool tables, and four Brunswick Duckpin Social bowling lanes featuring Spark, the first immersive, interactive scoring experience in the bowling industry. Spark will make its U.S. debut June 1st at Emagine Batavia. Emagine Batavia is located at 550 Randall Rd. in Batavia, Illinois.
Duckpin Social is a new take on Duckpin Bowling, a ten-pin game where bowlers use a smaller sized ball, without finger holes and each player is allowed up to three rolls per frame. Duckpin Social delivers all the fun of bowling while keeping it simple. There’s no need to rent shoes or search for the right-size ball. The versatility of Duckpin Social will combine with Spark technology to offer an even greater entertainment experience.
Spark engages every segment of entertainment seekers with software-driven technology and innovation that surrounds the bowler in a mesmerizing one-of-a-kind experience. Spark games introduce new targets and rules, giving bowlers of all ages and skill levels a chance to play in an engaging new way. Spark’s dynamic content keeps the experience fresh frame after frame with an ever-expanding library of interactive Sync games.
How it works: Guests can select their Spark experience directly on their Sync tablets, choosing from more than 15 animation themes and even projecting their own photos onto the lane. Spark’s exclusive Heads-Up Display projects scores and stats directly on the lanes. Guests are able to score by hitting targets on the lanes as well as pins.
“We are all about innovation, entertainment, and providing an exemplary experience at Emagine. Our High Roller Room will deliver on all those elements with the Spark and Duckpin Social bowling experience and full suite of amenities planned for Emagine Batavia,” stated Paul Glantz, Chairman and Co-Founder of Emagine Entertainment. “The Spark experience is a tech-savvy innovation to bowling. It’s an amazing enhancement for family activities, date nights, birthday parties, and group and corporate outings looking for engaging ways to create social connections,” added Anthony LaVerde, CEO of Emagine Entertainment.
Emagine Entertainment, announced in February another exclusive feature at Emagine Batavia with the Super EMX auditorium, which will be the largest movie theatre screen in Illinois with a 96-foot screen. The 4K laser-projected image will be paired with a Dolby Atmos® immersive sound system with 70 channels of sound to create the most remarkable moviegoing experience in the marketplace today.
The venue, formally the Randall 15 IMAX, was purchased by Emagine back in the Spring of 2020 along with theatres in Saginaw, MI, Noblesville, IN and Portage, IN. The building is currently being renovated and will be completely transformed into a luxurious and upscale movie theatre set to open June 1, 2023.
