SHERMAN, Texas -- Grayson County has a new entertainment destination.

Schulman's Movie Bowl Grille opened its doors in Sherman at 10 a.m. Friday.

"This is fantastic!" said Kristine Burreson of Sherman. "It's huge, and we had no idea it's as big as it is."

"We are thrilled to death," said owner Mark Schulman. "It is a wonderful place to open a business in... a great supportive city and community, and we couldn't be more excited than a three-armed monkey picking bananas."

The facility, at the southeast corner of US 75 and FM 1417, features first-run movies, bowling, arcade games and dining. Sherman is Schulman's third venue.

"It's a good, great, growing city," Schulman said. "They're really progressive. Why not? Why not Sherman?"

"This is something for the entire region," Sherman Mayor David Plyler added. "People will come from Durant, from Frisco, McKinney. This is quite a big facility, and it's got a lot of options for entertainment."

"We usually travel to The District or Dave and Busters," Burreson said. "This is local, so this will definitely keep us in town."

The fun includes a rock-climbing wall, a ropes course, and even axe-throwing. And it has generated 250 new jobs.

"It's a broad cast of giving people more options in one spot for entertainment to enjoy their family and friends," Schulman said.

Grand opening events at Schulman's Movie Bowl Grille continue through June 30, with prizes that include unlimited arcade play, movies and bowling. Everyone who signs up for a free club membership receives a $10 voucher for arcade games and bowling.

Most of the attractions are open until at least midnight every day, later on weekends.
