The Space Invaders: In Search of Lost Time
Remember Pac-Man and Donkey Kong? This is where a $50 billion dollar a year industry got its start. What happened to all the old games when the arcades of the early ‘80s disappeared? The Space Invaders: In Search of Lost Time by SF Bay Area filmmaker Jeff Von Ward follows the rise, fall and rebirth of classic arcade games. Meet the kids who came of age during the golden era of the arcade, now grown up— or mostly grown up—and turning their basements and garages into Chuck-E-Cheeses, intent on preserving the thirty-year-old games they still enjoy.
