Quoted from Mathazar:

Used Cars (1980, Kurt Russell). Very underrated low budget comedy. Bowling alley bar scene about 50 minutes in, looks like Space Invaders on the left, Gottlieb Count-Down in the middle, and a pin on the right I can't make out yet.[quoted image]

Looks like Paragon.

2 brief images of rock drummer Vinnie Appice with a Charlie's Angels (Gottlieb 1979) from the documentary "Dio: Dreamers Never Die."

There is also very quick footage of another machine...

I think you're right....I thought it was that too at first, but thinking Paragon was a wide body I dismissed it because it didn't look wide. But the art seems to match up. Plus...movie was filmed and came out in 1980, Count-Down came out in 1980, and Paragon came out in mid-1979 so they all kind of line up.

Turned the TV on and apparently the pawn stars guys have a spinoff show.

Pawn Stars Do America. Crazy collection of games.

Totally turns me off shows like pawn stars, storage wars, etc. when prices are so unrealistic. Probably why I don't watch these shows. The 2 guys on that pawn stars travelling episode were showing Rick a half sized Ms. Pacman. Said they wanted 8k USD. Lol. Probably cost them $400 to build it. I just hooked up my brother in law with a original standup Ms. Pacman with new decals for $1500 cdn and I thought that was high

It's actually a print shop that has arcade games. It's in the Haight Ashbury area of San Francisco, near the east end of Golden Gate Park.
They print Tee Shirts and other garments. They're also a block away from the second Amoebae Records store.

Thanks! It's in Ep 2 as well, and has the potential to be in many more as it is located in one gang's hideout!

I was watching a YouTube piece on that great old Nickelodeon show "You Can't Do That On Television", and it featured many clips from the show, including one with a kid playing Stars. Unfortunately I have no idea which season/episode is, this is all I've got.

" Malcolm " a 1986 Melbourne movie .
I think Kiss is on the right , not sure about the others .
A great comedy heist movie , it's on Netflix Australia , a great movie worth watching if you can find it .

Nah, that's defiantly a Solar Fire. You can see the red "sun" in the middle of the back glass, and part of the word Solar at the top.

Quoted from Manhattan:

Jason Sudeikis is a pinhead. I even saw or read an interview he did where its revealed that he grinded over Ted Lasso concepts/writing over pinball and beer at his house with the Asst. Coach on the show who is a writer/co-creator as well I believe.

I was just watching this episode. I had to check if it was showcased on here.

I met Jason Sudeikas at an arcade playing pinball. He is a cool guy.

Not a movie or TV show, but rather a behind-the-scenes daily vlog on YouTube that tracks the Professional Bowlers Tour during tournament season. This week they're in Springfield, MO for the PBA Springfield Classic.

Here's Kyle Troup ("The Pro with the 'fro") playing a Sega Frankenstein surrounded by Jesper Svensson and Kris Prather.

Not too sure if this counts but it was on TV

They used to do a 3 minute slot before the 10 O'clock news here called 3 minute wonder and we were filmed for one called "Garage Wars" which was supposed to show the conflict between husband and wife over garage space, only trouble is my wife doesn't care!!

Surprised no one has mentioned it before

Looks like a Jack in the Box (Gottlieb, 1973) in "Tim's Vermeer" documentary. Penn Jillette in the background.

In Waking Life, the encounter with Richard Linklater's character features him playing 1972's Firestarter, which is specifically highlighted by the film's rotoscoped animation style.

I saw this in a new AT&T commercial, (close up in one of the pics), looks like a 60’s Gottlieb two-player, not sure if it’s a re-theme or not?

Gottlieb had a Playball one player machine but the back glass is more psychedelic looking from 1971. Thinking it is a retheme or re-do of something else unless there was an alternative back glass made for this.
