An old-school entertainment bar with duckpin bowling, foosball, pinball and pingpong has joined the lineup at the Bottleworks District. 

Ohio-based Pins Mechanical Company plans to open its first Indiana location at the former Coca-Cola bottling plant, 850 Massachusetts Ave., in 2020.

Also coming to Bottleworks is Living Room Theater, a movie theater that specializes in a mix of local, international and independent movies.

The $300 million Bottleworks development includes 11 acres of entertainment, restaurants, residences, a food hall and hotel along Mass Ave.
