"Boyhood" is a 2014 drama about growing up. Filmed over the course of 12 years with a cast composed partially of actors (like Ethan Hawke) and real people (Ellar Coltrane).
Separated parenting means that Hawke and Coltrane spend a lot of their father-son bonding time in the bowling alley.
Twelve years pass as Ellar, who plays Mason, grows from age six to eighteen.
Richard Linklater's biopic won the Golden Globe award for Best Motion Picture, along with 97% approval on Rotten Tomatoes.
As for Dart Bowl, it's not just a bowling alley. It's also a restaurant known for its epic enchiladas and burgers. Open 9AM-12AM seven days a week, it's a local favorite.
