by Lorie Lewis Ham

Kings River Life Magazine has had the privilege of working with Dinuba Platinum Theatres over the past year or so to be able to bring movie reviews to our readers. They have also given our readers a coupon with every review. I took the time to sit down recently and talk with Pat Gabriel, their General Manager ever since their grand opening in June 2003, about the theatre and all they have to offer the community now and in the future!

Swimming with Tsunamis: Local Band Profile

by Zachariah Zendejas

On the musical scene today is the post-hardcore band Swimming with Tsunamis, with members from the Dinuba and Tulare areas. New to the local music scene, this band was formed in January of this year.Post-hardcore refers to the area of punk and hardcore, but does not reside in these neighborhoods; post-hardcore is its own sound, as is Swimming with Tsunamis. Their mix of scream and clean vocals doesn’t make for “easy listening” but it is definitely enjoyable.

Dinuba Lanes Bowling Alley

by Amanda Hager

Armen Majarian is the current owner of Dinuba Lanes bowling alley in Dinuba. He has been the owner since 2004 and in the years since he has provided the community with great bowling entertainment. As an employee myself of Dinuba Lanes, I have seen the immense amount of fun people have when they visit the bowling alley. To watch the families bowl and compete against one another is what keeps the bowling alley alive and well. It is a great and fun way to enjoy time with friends and family, especially on rainy days when other activities may be limited.
