Lucky Strikes in downtown Phoenix
2003 was the end of an era for the iconic Hollywood Star Lanes, an institution that served Hollywood for 43 years and was home to the filming of “The Big Lebowski.” In March it was leveled to make way for a school. But just as the door to one icon closed, another opened.
In April of that year Lucky Strike Lanes debuted its first location in Hollywood. Wanting to pay homage to its predecessor, Lucky Strike purchased Lane #7 from Star Lanes and made it Lucky Strike Hollywood’s bar. It’s been good luck ever since. Eight years and 20 locations later Lucky Strike Lanes continues to roll its way across the country.

Arizona Science Center, formerly the Arizona Museum of Science & Technology, was started in 1980 as a pilot science center by the Junior League of Phoenix.
Incorporated as a private, non-profit corporation in 1982, the Science Center opened its doors to the public in 1984. Our first home was a 10,000-square-foot storefront exhibition space located in the parking-garage level of the downtown Phoenix Hyatt.
More than 87,000 people visited the Center its first year. The Center’s success earned it more than $33 million in voter-approved disbursements by the 1988 City of Phoenix Bond to provide the land and construction of the Science Center’s new permanent home.
