The story of Chinatown Fair, the legendary arcade located in the heart of New York’s Chinatown. This documentary explores how the arcade became a shelter to a community as diverse as the city surrounding it and changed lives in doing so.

Blinking, beaming, and ringing, THE LOST ARCADE intimately memorializes the end of video arcades in New York City, while celebrating the camaraderie and history of a pop culture phenomenon. The film is an exceptional directorial debut that focuses on the Chinatown Fair, the Mott Street landmark where generations honed their craft, made friends and lost at tic-tac-toe to a chicken. Masterfully presenting the sights and sounds of a changing scene, wistful yet hopeful, and full of the faces and characters that radiate fun and innovation, The Lost Arcade is a dazzling portrait of technostalgia and a timely commentary on the corporate era’s incineration of modest businesses, and the resiliency of the dedicated enthusiasts.

“Part scrappy, part sweet and wholly enjoyable, “The Lost Arcade” is a love letter to a vanished piece of New York, and a little wish for the future.”
– NEW YORK TIMES

“The film meets the open door, come-as-you-are community on its own level, avoiding the forced, interwoven three-character structure that far too many works of American nonfiction seem obliged to employ.”
– VILLAGE VOICE

“An enjoyable and nostalgic portrait of a bygone era and a local institution that has now lost the pungent atmospheric flavor that made it so unique.”
– HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
