It was renamed West Dixie Lanes when I was a kid and bowled there in a tournament in 1988. The bowling alley closed in the 1990s and I believe the building itself still stands but was bought by Florida Power and Light in the 1990s and turned into offices. The last time I saw it was in 2000, not sure what it is now or if the building still stands.

It was called Imperial Lanes I Bowled there all the time the building in the upper left hand corner was Garys marine service and just beyond the small tank on 159th st (mid right hand side) was the North Miami Beach American Leigon. Just south of the Bowling alley was the corner of 163rd st and Dixie Hwy where the old Ed Morse ford was. I lived at 169th terr and dixie. From 1958 to 1980

Interama Bowl... [also known as Pinerama Bowl and West Dixie Lanes] was built and owned by Jack Knapp. Knapp built a theater behind the bowling alley in the 1970's.
