Watching "Good Luck Charlie" on TV, my 10-year old daughter was kind enough to point out the Whitewater Pinball machine in the show. Too funny. It was all lit up with LEDs and looking great!!

Watching the Three Stooges "Three Smart Saps" with Curly circa 1942, the boys play a Bally Bingo Pinball woodrail machine with three-bolt legs. The backglass had columns of:Four Leaf Clovers, Trophy Cup, Star, Bulls-Eye, Ribbon Award, and a Uncle Sam Hat with a ring around the hat. BTW: Not really a funny bit, but Curly is still the best!! If you like, record the Stooges on DirecTV, Channel 254, AMC at midnights.

I can't remember the Al Pacino movie and a couple other movies I have seen over the last few years that had an active pinball machine in the scene. Any others??

Corner Gas. A 2004 episode called, 'Worlds Biggest Thing', a Williams Police Force is being played by Lacy. That same pin is in the background of scenes in different episodes filmed in the Hotel.

I believe it was a Twister Pinball Machine.

There was a much bigger tread than this, but I can't find it. Just watched kick ass 2 and in the "mother fuckers" lair I could see MB, TOM and in a long shot, circus Voltaire. There were more .... well at least one. Thought I saw a weel of fortune, that might have been my eyes playing tricks.

Is that Chris Pine?

Most likely not , looks like an indie film .I just turned on the tv and this was on . The guy was playing space station and there was some bees and the bees died. Info on my tv says the movie tittle was “Beyond the Edge “ but it seems like that was not correct . Caught the end of the credits and the movie was filmed in Michigan but that’s about all I know.

I was wondering about this too. There are a lot of movies called Beyond the Edge. Looks like this one is also called ISRA 88 and is maybe pretty obscure. Click...

Cross Post....I was watching the Toy Story 4 Clips & Trailers YouTube video & saw part of a pinball machine. Anyone know which game it may be?

KC & The Sunshine Band - Give it up

I recognize Haunted House but not the others. Sorry about the quality. It's a picture of a video paused.

It’s either a Gottlieb Neptune or a Hit The Deck, can’t tell which one this is.
