    Just ran across this and thought of staring a thread. What other movies can you think of that have a pinball machine in it. I will start w/ this one.

    #2 4 years ago

    Donut Lady of the Pinballs I heard might have some in there...it's only a rumor though.

    #3 4 years ago

    Star Gazer in Ghostbusters, just before they slide down the fire pole.

    #4 4 years ago

    next of kin. bunch of games get shotgun treatment

    #5 4 years ago

    There is a movie with William Hurt, I think it is called "The Doctor" and in the scenes shot at his home there is a Black Knight pinball machine that is seen several times.

    #6 4 years ago

    Came across Rumble in the Bronx, a Jackie Chan movie. There's a fighting scene in an Arcade where about 10 pins can be spotted. Half of them end up trashed.

    #7 4 years ago

    I want to check out all of these movies to see the pinballs. LOL

    #8 4 years ago

    I'm still trying to figure out what pinball machine is in the movie "13 Going on 30."

    DE Star Wars makes an appearance in the new movie Blended.

    #13 4 years ago

    Great list, I don't see the Purge on there. In the game room there is a machine.

    #14 4 years ago

    Dana Carvey in "Opportunity Knocks" (an 80's flick) has a High Speed connected to the home burglar alarm.

    #15 4 years ago

    I was watching 'Next' last night, Nicolas Cage, Julianne Moore etc, and 16 minutes in, I spotted a nice old flipperless woodie called 'Rocket' (1947 Bally) in the background when Nic is playing pool with his dad. (Peter Falk)

    I just looked at the list you linked to jimjim and it's actually noted, but the author had no idea what pin it is. He didn't look very hard did he.

    There are plenty of movies where you can spot a pin. Tilt (1979) and Tommy (1975) are the obvious ones of course...

    Saw a Sylvester Stallone movie where he was a cop playing a game of pinball at the beginning in a bar.

    Saw a couple of recent, small movies with pins in them...

    They Came Together, kind of a parody of romantic comedies, has a Williams Olympic Hockey (I think) in Paul Rudd's apartment.

    Ping Pong Summer, an 80s period piece shot in Ocean City, MD, has a Harlem Globetrotters.
