Arcade: The Last Night at Chinatown Fair, a Documentary.

Apr 26, 2011 @ 20:26

Hello everybody, I am Anthony C. AKA Helgen X, Associate Producer (www.thenewyorkblues.net) of this presentation, and I would like to present to you a film that is somewhat out of the ordinary than other documentaries in the fact that it's not about just people and a place that was like a home to many, but the voice of the many who cherished the very spot.

Chinatown Fair arcade.

In the film, there will be showcasing of some of my images (shot with my E-P1), as well as documentaries featuring some of the greatest gamers of USA.

ARCADE: The Last Night at Chinatown Fair documents the final week of New York City’s last arcade, Chinatown Fair. The film follows the community of spirited gamers as they make their way from Manhattan’s Chinatown to their new home at Next Level in Brooklyn, an arcade started by Chinatown Fair’s former manager Henry Cen.


The fundraising site is thankfully hosted by Kickstarter, which I hope any and everyone will consider donating, as there are rewards for those who donate certain amounts as well!

Thank you for taking the time to read/view this, and I hope you have a great day... Stay tuned for the finished film!

Their new location is too damn far, but had some good games in 3rd strike everytime I passed through.

Don't badmind me.

Yeah, it is quite far. That location, however, is not owned by the same people nor is it a 2nd, but it's just a NEW arcade owned by CF's manager, Henry.
