Fine Arts Theater
Once known in the 1930 as the Texas Theatre, it was part of Denton's famous Theatre Row. It was the largest of the movies houses on Theatre Row at that time but was superseded later by the Campus Theatre. The theatre was remodelled in the early 1950's and given the new name of the Fine Arts Theatre. The theatre was to show documentary type films and also those of an artistic nature as well as introducing a new concept of serving popcorn, candy and coffee. None of this proved profitable and so after 6 months the theatre went back to showing traditional mainstream films.

Cosmic Bowling at Brunswick: Something a lil different
Well, bowling is fun anytime really but it's even better at night (around 10pm) during Cosmic bowling!! The bowling alley turns down the lights, turns up the music and the blue lights come on to make an electric light show with pins and balls. It's really fun with a group of friends and a great way to meet other people if you're looking for it. It really is like being at a club but with bowling. There is a full bar so you can drink it up, too!
If you're coming to Denton with a younger family this is a great idea to do together. You don't have to come late at night for Cosmic bowling. The alley is open all day long. It is a fun place for birthday parties, too! You can see their variety of hours so you can come any day, anytime. There is also a snack bar so you can eat a meal here if you'd like. And for the kids there is an arcade.
Extras: Bar, Food, Pro Shop, Arcade

Lucky Lou's: Fry Street Sports Bar
Lucky Lou's is on the ever-changing, yet fabulously famous FRY STREET. Most people here are students of the University of North Texas (GO EAGLES!). There are a range of things to do. They usually have good drink specials and big screen tvs for sports games. You can sit inside or sit on the patio and drink the night away. If you live in the apartments close by you can drink all ya want and then just walk home. And if you live a little farther there are many taxis around to get ya home. Be safe!!
This was my favorite spot to watch the NBA finals. Everyone came decked out in Dallas Maverick gear and the drink specials were awesome.
Dress Code: Anything ya want!
Originally this was a movie house, albeit a grand one, which was built in 1949 just off the square for the students of both universities in Denton. It was one of several state-of-the-art movies in the southwest at that time. In 1985 the theatre was closed and left vacant until 1990 when it was purchased by the Greater Denton Arts Council and later renovated. In 1995, the doors were opened again for the grand re-opening.
various: THE Street
The street with most bars in Denton is called Fry Street and it is located right next to the University of North Texas. Because of its location, it is a big college hang out, but have some decent places even for people who are a few years older.
