I plan on making a full blown arcade in the space before entering my theater. Good to see other fans of the "great dead" arcade days. I miss them
Anyway, looking good. I love to see what people can do with the limited space they have to work with. You are lucky, some wife's would not have had that monster in there attic. I floated that idea by my wife once and she said HELL NO!
My wife is a true gem. She is very supportive of the theater and the old arcade games. We have teenagers so it is a safe place for them to bring their friends to have fun. The arcade is moving down below the theater room to the garage. I am closing in two of the three bays for an arcade room. I really liked the combo room but I will have more room for game machines in the garage. I sold the pool table so it will be 100% video game machines and maybe an air hockey table. I am already eyeing Craigslist for arcade cabinets. Finding a used commercial air hockey table may prove to be a challenge though. I enjoy working on the arcade cabinets and restoring them. I would always get them and then sell them because I didn't have the room. Now I can build a collection
I was 11 back in 1981 when all the classics games hit the arcades. Maybe it is a mid-life crisis thing, but I really enjoy them. Sometimes I set the games on "attract mode" and just sit and listen to the mix of all the sounds.. Takes me back like it was yesterday.
Thanks for following the thread. It isn't fancy like a lot of the builds but I am enjoying it.
