The Bowlarama (Interior)
Real Location: Hawthorne Bowl, Hawthorne, Ca
Located on about 141st St. and Hawthorne Blvd. this was the main Bowling Alley in Hawthorne. Hawthorne had 14 lanes a cocktail lounge, Coffee Shop, and pool tables for anyone wanting to grab a cocktail, a burger or a game of billiards. Shortly after Grease 2 was released, the bowling alley was converted into Medical Offices.
The interior of the Bowling Alley is where Michael and Stephanie share their first kiss in Grease 2. *Update* Friend of the site, Jerry M., wrote to us with the following details and a current photo of the location. “First it is/was at 141st Street and Hawthorne Blvd. but not in Norwalk but in the city of Hawthorne. The address you found (1408 South Hawthorne Blvd.) is old and they were all converted in the 1960’s I believe. The correct address is now 14120 Hawthorne Blvd. and is currently occupied by Hawthorne School District.”
