Coates Promotes “Space Invaders: In Search of Lost Time”

Space Invaders: In Search of Lost Time directed by my client Jeff Von Ward has a local premiere this week.

A certain college professor of my acquaintance used to drag me along to watch him empty quarters in the arcade machines of video game prehistory at the SONY Metreon pleasure zone.

This new documentary film takes a retro look at video arcade games now mostly in the loving hands, basements and garages of dedicated collectors. Von Ward’s clever visual treatments make this a lively and likeable pacman bite of Proustian Madeleine memory of fun with primitive machines of mechanical logic.
