My Three Sons S1:E16 "Bub Leaves Home". William Frawley, the guy who played Fred Mertz on I Love Lucy, goes into a bus station and plays Nags (1960). Includes a clip of the rotating center playfield. Google the episode and watch it, the pinball machine is near the beginning.

The Buddy Holly Story (1978). Busey was terrific and did all his own vocals.

Looks like a 1971 Williams Swinger in a movie set in the 50's.

Not a pinball, but a pinball arcade sign. They never did show it though.

The movie was released just prior to the Rush song.

Quoted from girloveswaffles:

From the new March 7 episode of American Dad. Klaus's Secret Lair.

That pin in the American Dad episode is most definitely based on Elvira HoH.

Early in Ghostbusters Afterlife, there is a Fireball Home Pinball in the Spinners diner. It's hard to see because it's not in focus, but you can just make it out in the 4K version.

Forensic files older episode #216 Or so had a Jurassic Park in bar

Quoted from Ceckitti:

Saw a Data East Jurassic park on an episode of Forensic files the other night. Didn’t have phone on me for picture. Will try to grab one and post it.

Just watched another episode and they had same DE JP for a bar scene. So it looks like they use that bar for multiple scenes/episodes throughout the series.

one on far left might be BLY Knockout
as it looks like boxing gloves on the front of the CAB

Quoted from kingpinman:

I would say Top Score (Gottlieb, 1975) except the bottom front of the backbox frame doesn't match up.

Quoted from pinwiztom:

Yes, Knockout (Bally, 1975).

Quoted from mbeardsley:

There is a pinball machine in the new "Ghostbusters - Afterlife" film. I think it was a Fireball Home version, but without being able to stop the film and see, I can't be certain.

Yes, Fireball Home Pinball - screenshot below

I'm 16 min into this B horror movie "Clowns in the Woods" and had to share this, I'm not sure the game. I wish you would see newer or well known titles in movies like in "Kickass 2"IMG_1060 (resized).jpgIMG_1060 (resized).jpg

There are 2 in Metal Lords currently playing on Netflix, Metallica and I think AC/DC. Sorry didn’t get a pic. They are in the main character’s house and are visible in a number of scenes, with one pretty good closeup.

Can you screencap the part with the pinball machines? Linking video is bad because if the video is removed later, it breaks the link and picture in the video in this thread.

You can't gang multiple shows into one post because only one can be entered in the index. One show per post.

TV Movie, Nash Bridges The Movie, 2021

First fight scene in the movie, Shot on location at the
Musee Mecanique Arcade in S.F. Pier 45.

Unknown Pinball, Good shot of cabinet art.

A bunch of other arcade games in the fight sequence.

A Very cool place to visit.
