It is actually Hi Hand (Williams woodrail kinda bingo poker game (no pops)).
Not to be confused with GTB High Hand.

#2004 1 year ago
Quoted from ThatOneDude:

Single Parents

Betting background pin is a classic Stern Galaxy, with revised altered artwork on BG.
though background pin's CAB artwork is something i do not recognise or match to Galaxy.

The game the gal is playing appears to have habitrails, but bet you a dollar
the sounds were bells and chimes.

Quoted from Jackontherocks:

The Rundown, in the bar scene when the Rock orders a beer there is one older pin my guess from 60's or 70's game in back before big shot out happens

Here is visual proof for The Rundown (2003 starring The Rock). These are the best shots, and definitely going to need help with ID.

Click on topic index at the top of any page in this thread, expand that list and search it. You'll find that Tiger king is on it, and you can click on it to go to the post with the picture.

On Disney+ ENCORE show, the Fiddler on the Roof episode, one of the participants is a "tenured pinball tech" (which clearly means route tech since the targets on the Funhouse they show him wiping are FILTHY) at Walt's in Highland Park, CA.

https://pinside.com/pinball/map/where-to-play/11193-walt-s-bar-los-angeles-ca

In the show, they show a Funhouse, Earthshaker, Fathom and some Gottlieb EMs. The pins on pin map have changed since then, though. The show is TERRIBLE from what I've seen, but my daughter watches it and was excited to see pinball pop up in that episode unexpectedly.

EDIT:This post was moved to split up a post where I had two shows in one post so each show could be indexed as a separate post.

BASEketball (1998)

Not sure what pin is in the background. You can hear the sounds of an EM during the movie.

Just watched “used cars” and noticed a Count Down and Paragon in the background of a bar scene! Those games must have been brand new in that movie. There’s also a Paragon in the background of the comic book store in the classic “Lost Boys” movie.

Do not know the name of the Chuck Bronson movie, (Death Wish #17?)
but the Pin is a GTB Tropic Isle.

The Mechanic.

Quoted from o-din:

The Mechanic.

So is a wrench he is throwing at me?

#2022 1 year ago

He is throwing knives at a target. He is not an automotive mechanic.

Here's one more picture (see post #1197) from the 1967 german movie "69 Liebesspiele" featurig Williams' 1958 Soccer "Kick-Off"[quoted image]

If you break out the movies and screenshots I did NOT index in post 1197, I can index the other ones. It needs to be one movie and pictures per post so I can keypost them separately. With this one I've keyposted two from that post, but there were like 5 in that one post and I can only key post one, so you have three that are unreported as far as the index is concerned.

I was watching The Amityville Horror (1979) today. There is a scene where George meets up with his business partner at a bar. There is the sound of a pinball machine but it is not seen on screen.

Just watched Gremlins for the 1st time in forever and noticed this exact thing. In the first bar scene you can hear chimes of an EM, but there's no machine in the shot or in any of the other scenes the are set in the bar.

So, some good news from Robin here on Pinside. He thinks he should be able to implement an alpha sort option for the topic index, meaning the movie/tv show Topic Index will always be available in alphabetical order once he gets it in.

"Out For Justice(1991)" [Steven Seagal and William Forsythe]. In Madano’s Bar there’s 2 Pinball and a few arcades behind as well.

*this Movie was mentioned here before but without pics.

So, Charles Bronson in The Mechanic with a Tropic Isle is not worth highlighting or adding to the list.

OK, I'll keep posting oddball ones as I see them, and you can keep on ignoring them.

Did you post a picture? Picture is required to be keyposted to the index. I didn't see a post for The Mechanic with a picture.

There's probably 10-20% more games than are keyposted simply because no one posted a picture with the callout to verify that there was a pin and what it was. If that bothers people, they can be a hero and go back through all those text-only posts then make a post with a picture, but that hero is not me. Keyposting this whole thread to index the 500 games with pictures was my contribution.

Quoted from Silverballer:

In the latest War of the Worlds flick I saw what may be part of a Captain Fantastic cabinet in the home where Tom Cruises character lived. He also drove a '68 Mustang Fastback. What a Maverick

Yes, was watching that movie the other day and noticed that too. It’s a nitro groundshaker, as you can tell from artwork. Must be the car theme where he drives the mustang in the movie.

Robin has the key post index alpha sort option in beta! You can sort the key post index by post number, key post text, or user name! Super slick. It should be live on the site soon, but will make this thread even more awesome!

I would list off all the games but would need to see the episode again and it is not available free that I can find. This will give pinsiders something to do. The arcade is a central part of the plot.

Quite a haul from one episode of a TV show. Ah, the 70s.

History Channel Documentary called 'Kingpin.'
This one was about Whitey Bulger/Irish mob.

They talk about how the Winter Hill gang controlled some of the pinball market back in 70's Boston. And they show a Fashion Show, Fast Draw, Goin' Nuts, Spiderman, Superman, Fireball, QBert.

I can't figure out the one next to the Qbert (which has a DMD) and the one with the yellow playfield.

The first location was a quanza hut turned into an arcade, the second one is stuff collected by a guy known as The Junkman. He got most of this stuff which had been thrown out. The Lady Robin Hood was part of a payment for removing junk / trash from a home. Nothing was said about the Grand Prix.
