showtime bowlThe Showtime Bowling Center in Athens may be closed for at least six months following the partial collapse of its roof during a torrential rainstorm Thursday night.

The roof fell to the floor in the game room of the center on Macon Highway and water flooded the bowling lanes, according to Carol Snell, general manager of the bowling alley.

After the roof collapsed, “a sheet of water came pouring down inside. It was unreal the amount of water in the building,” Snellsaid.

The collapse occurred about 10 p.m. Thursday, about two hours before the bowling center’s midnight closing, but no injurkes were reported in connection with the roof collapse.

“My cleaning lady was in the game room and she saw it [the roof] coming down so she ran out. That’s the only part that actually fell down to the floor,” Snell said. In addition to the bowling lanes, other entertainment options at Showtime Bowl were also damaged as water flooded the building.

“The pool tables, the video games, are completely gone,” Snell said. “The whole center had water over it. The back end had like two feet of water.”
