*"The Lost Arcade" documentary screening*
Written and produced by Irene Chin and directed by Kurt Vincent, THE LOST
ARCADE, is an intimate story of a once-ubiquitous cultural phenomenon on
the edge of extinction, especially in New York City, which once had video
arcades by the dozen. These arcades were as much social hubs to meet up and
hang out as they were public arenas for gamers to demonstrate their skills.
But by 2011, only a handful remained, most of them corporate affairs,
leaving the legendary Chinatown Fair on Mott Street as the last hold-out of
old-school arcade culture. Opened in the early 1940’s, Chinatown Fair,
famous for its dancing and tic tac toe playing chickens, survived turf wars
between rival gangs, increases in rent, and the rise of the home gaming
system to become an institution and haven for kids from all five boroughs.
A documentary portrait of the Chinatown Fair and its denizens, THE LOST
ARCADE is a eulogy for and a celebration of the arcade gaming community,
tenacity, and Dance Dance Revolutionary spirit.

The documentary will be screened at FDG and the director Kurt Vincent will
be at FDG.
