Historic Cuyahoga Falls Theater reimagined as leisure heart The Workz

It’s been 30 years in the making, but the Falls Theater is now a new look – and concept.

CUYAHOGA FALLS, Ohio – It started with a vision a few years ago. Tim Frankish and family members viewed the historic Falls Theater, which has stood empty for nearly 30 years, as something else: and as a family entertainment hub.

“When we saw the floor plan, when we saw the sights, we fell in love with the look and the location. And downtown Cuyahoga Falls is beautiful down here, there is so much to do,” Frankish said.

“There is finally a safe and fun place for families to come out and enjoy an evening. Play games, bowl, eat phenomenal food and finally get out of the house,” said Frankish.

The Workz has something for everyone and features duckpin bowling, an arcade, and virtual reality games. Plus, a full service restaurant.

And open soon? A speakeasy with some old, classic drinks.

“We have really unique cocktails, really good little plates of food. You know, just a different atmosphere and mood,” Frankish said.

Safety is a top priority. Staff regularly clean the arcades, bowling, and virtual reality games area. There are hand disinfection stations around the building.

“We also follow all government guidelines for barriers, limited capacity, and the like,” Frankish said.

It is a family business that prides itself on reinterpreting history here in Cuyahoga Falls.

“The community has been incredibly supportive. Every time I come in here I get excited,” said Frankish.
