Grim Bowling Scene in There Will Be Blood Inspires Bowling Alley

Of the many memorable moments in Paul Thomas Anderson's 2007 smash hit There Will Be Blood, perhaps the most memorable is the scene where Daniel Day Lewis's Plainview bludgeons Paul Dano's Eli with a bowling pin in a bowling alley. So inspiring was this cinematic moment that Santa Monica-based design firm Studio Collective looked to it to conceive the interiors of The Spare Room, a gaming hangout/bowling alley in Hollywood. Its old-time-y, masculine feel is meant to mirror Plainview's bowling alley in the movie, what with many details like rich woods, leathers, and tufting. Co.Design has the full scoop.
