    We loved this place! What's not to love about a theater that allows you to enjoy your meal, and drinks in the theater? It was great, and we have been a few times since then!  more »

    Our family attempted to go to a movie at the Foundry. There were two employees selling tickets at the same time. We told one of them how many tickets we wanted and gave her our credit card. Meanwhile ...  more »

    This place is amazing, didn't think much of it first walking up but the bowling alley is really nice. Lanes are well taken care of, you pay for an hour at the start but the staff will add more time fo...  more »

    The Foundry, Fraser, CO The worst experience! Our group of 18 ( 8 adults & 10 kids) went to this establishment for a fun time bowling and shuffle board. We ordered food spending more more than $200 in an hour. There were two kids in our group that have food allergies and after talking with staff it was determined that they could not accommodate the allergies. We asked where the nearest fast food was so our two kids could eat safe food. Upon returning with the food we were blocked from meeting our group and told we couldn't bring the food in. We met up with the group who was bowling when the owner came over and started yelling at us in front of our kids. The owner was confrontational, rude and threatening. This was very upsetting to the 9 years old with the food allergies as they didn't understand why he was acting this way. We left immediately and will never return. This act is discrimination and closed minded. Do not support this establishment and the hate it represents.

    One stop for entertainment. Bowling alley, movie theatre, bar, games and snacks. Movie theatre seats and huge and have tables for you to eat your pizza. The pizza was pretty good. Stadium style seats. Small theatre so get there early. Decent beer selection and full service bar. A nice place to spend a cold rainy afternoon.

    0 stars My family came to Fraser, CO this weekend with three other couples and our ten children. We went on a hike specifically to go to The Foundry for a fun time for our party of 18. In the short time we were there, we spent well over $200 in games, food, and drinks. Only one other party was there bowling, so they were not busy. Two of the children in our party have severe, anaphylactic allergies, one to dairy, the other to nuts. None of the menu items were safe. The risk of cross contamination was great for both children. I asked the cashier directly, when placing my order for my family, if they could accommodate a dairy allergy. She said no. I asked her where the nearest fast food restaurant was. She indicated there was a McDonald's about a ten minute walk up the road. Mind you, she made no indication that I couldn't then bring that food back into the establishment. My friend, who has the son with the nut allergy, and I then headed to McDonald's to get food for them. As we came back in with their food, a man stepped in front of us, put his hands up, and told us we could not come in with outside food and that they were discriminating against our children and that it was a violation of the ADA. We further indicated that we could call the police and proceeded to walk around him to our group. A short time later, a different man (who later identified himself as the owner), came back and confronted us, saying again we couldn't have the food in there because it violated their licensing laws. We then informed him that it was in violation of the ADA and discriminatory to not allow us to accommodate our children with allergies when they had nothing on the menu that was safe. He then said he would allow it this one time, but proceeded to stay there, telling us he could call the police and have us kicked out, and further indicated that it was stealing (presumably referring to the money he's losing from us not buying food for these two 9 year old boys), which has nothing to do with his original argument of violating some licensing law, and everything to do with the greedy business side of him wanting to make money. He also stated something to the effect that he enjoyed taking these types of people on, basically calling us liars about the allergies. Why would we pay for 16/18 people to have food there, and then go out of our way to get food for two people in our party, if it wasn't legit?! It was at this time that I looked at my son, who was looking at me with fear and concern. He immediately began sobbing into my side when I put my arm around him. That's when we decided it wasn't worth it and this place did not deserve another dime of our money. We gathered our belongings and proceeded to the exit. The owner was at the front and continued to engage us, touting the same ignorance, after we had already attempted to educate this ignorant man. It was only at the front door that he identified himself as the owner. A different female employee behind the shoe counter, was kind enough to give her two cents worth and said there were things on the menu that would be safe, although we had already asked the woman behind the food counter and were told no. Yet another male employee also piped in as we left and called us "trash." Needless to say, our entire group was upset, my son visibly crying. They made no attempt to make it right or to apologize to my son that they treated so poorly. I realize this was very long, but completely necessary, in my opinion, to give you a clearer picture as to how poorly and unprofessionally this place is run. We go out to eat regularly and have been to 100s of restaurants. They have either been able to make a special meal or not have a problem with us bringing in outside food. In my 8-1/2 years of accommodating my son's allergy, this type of confrontation has only happened one other time. Needless to say, we have never been back to that establishment as well. Please do not support this establishment. I assure you that none of us will ever return.

    Small bowling alley with 8 lanes. Reserve ahead. But it worked great and the kids loved the billiard painted balls. They also have automatic player specific lane bumpers. $12 an hour includes shoes.

    This place is awesome! Caught some pizza and a movie with my family. Super cool feel inside, great idea, will definitely hit it up again before vacation is over!
