"...Incorporating a bowling alley, with the actual Fifties-era lanes bought from legendary New Orleans bowler nirvana Rock 'n' Bowl, private karaoke rooms, a cafe, a bar, and oh so much more, the Palace, overseen by longtime Alamo architect Richard Weiss, with interior design by Joel Mozersky (Uchi, the Belmont), is a natural, fittingly organic outgrowth of both the Alamo brand and the Drafthouse's South Lamar location, specifically. And if you've been to just about any Friday or Saturday evening screenings there lately, then you've most likely already experienced the serpentine waiting lines that were the first inspiration for an expanded Alamo South Austin...."

"...James (Stevie, Hoop Dreams) goes back to his hometown of Hampton, Va., to revisit the 1993 bowling-alley brawl that came close to derailing, at age 17, the hoop dreams of NBA-star-to-be Allen Iverson and threw an inflammatory wrench into the town's race relations. James, who played basketball himself while growing up in Hampton and whose late father was inducted into the Hampton Sports Hall of Fame and whose mother was the school nurse at the time the black high school was integrated, relished the opportunity to go home and try to make sense of the racial upheaval that landed his hometown on national news..."
