Saw this last night at the Palace. Got there late, so can't comment on the entire film. However, I'll happily watch it again and I'm always glad to see interests like this kept alive. I'm not even a bowler, duckpin or otherwise; nevertheless, I've always found bowling alleys wonderful places and I love to hang out with friends who do bowl.

Given the recent news that the duckpin operation in Danbury was up for sale, I was a little disappointed to find that at least a mention of that facility wasn't included in the film.
How come

I thought the same thing. The Danbury Duckpin bowling lanes have been there for what over 50-60 years and NOT ONE mention in the film??? That place has quite a bit of history. Too bad the film didn't mention them also.

I used to duckpin bowl in Stamford where I grew up on Shippan Ave. next door Shippan Sports. That's where went on my birthdays. Not sure why it's not mentioned in the film. I'll have to ask. They may not have been aware.
Cheers TC
