Originally opened in 1940 at 363 Ontario Street, the Playdium Bowling Center sits, holding it’s ground. We still reside there today but much has changed since those early days. When other centers threw in the towl and shuddered their doors in the face of dwindling patronage, the Playdium sat, patiently, weathering the storms. It stands as the last public bowling alley in the city of Albany which is a source of pride for all who work at the Playdium Bowling Center.

The current owner, Neil Luther, purchased the center in 1983 and has had it running continuously since then. Over its many years of operations, numerous upgrades have been installed such as fully electronic scoring, state of the art glow bowling lighting, and audio equipment. This along with many other characteristics and quirks unique to the Playdium has helped keep it a focal point for local students, families, and visitors.

This local business has become and will continue to be a locally owned and operated anchor in the city of Albany for years to come.
