Theo's Lanes went up in 1959 (for $65,000) and was operated by Ted Lavedas back then. He once owned the Rio Club until it burned. I am sure I will cover that place eventually also. Theo's was 12 lanes at the start. The location was right near the Galien River. Eventually a miniature golf course was opened up next to the alley. It was probably Diamond Bowl by that time.
There was a lighthouse on the course that was considered a local landmark so it was moved when the place was demolished to make way for condos around 2005. I am using the address of the condos for reference as the old address for the bowling alley is no longer in use.
