Mean Pinball


Everything was going wonderfully at the Retro Arcade Museum in Beacon, New York.¬† Tourists came to see the vintage pinball machines and¬†classic arcade games. Locals booked private parties to relive the old days in front of Atari’s Pong and Breakout. Then the local city council took notice and shut the place down, citing an ordinance that bans arcades. Owner Fred Bobrow has decided to liquidate the place instead of waiting to be licensed under a new law that allows arcades under certain circumstances.
