The B & B Ankeny 12 & B-Roll Bowling in the Prairie Trail development in Ankeny, Iowa will open in December 2018, according to a recent article published in the Des Moines Register:

A new movie theater featuring reclining leather seats, a full-service bar and an attached bowling alley will open next month at Ankeny's Prairie Trail development.
