    Duplicate post to delete?

    I only see one?

    #5 2 years ago

    That one was deleted, "drained". I felt this was a more specific question. According to the site, the other should be gone.

    Posters can't delete threads; Draining it just makes it so you don't see it.

    Yeah, realized that, thanks. Just changed the post title instead.

    I like old playfields, pinball back glasses, folk video game art, and laserdiscs.

    Here's one in my gameroom I had to take down to photograph without massive reflections, great Alien studio artwork I picked up at ComicCon a few years ago. Goes well next to the original poster, too.

    Mostly posters that were issues at the Pacific Pinball Expo
    but back glasses as well. And of course neon signs.

    My Gameroom is an unfinished basement so I unfortunately cannot put up too much artwork, but here are my favs:

    I guess this thread is as good a place as any to show off this online auction score: for like $20 I landed an original 1950s large format Marilyn Monroe "Golden Dreams" calendar print earlier this month that had never been used or displayed!

    I stuck it in a frame with just Marilyn showing, but don't worry, the calendar part is wrapped around a thick backing so as to not introduce a crease.

    Iconic, right? Apparently it could be worth as much as a kilobuck!

    removed so as not to cause offense. back to your prints

    "Elderly man with handlebar mustache in cutoff denim shorts, Chelsea boots, black socks & shield sunglasses on hat performs for disinterested karaoke operator on checkerboard stage with hand-painted disco pinball-themed backdrop" is the art I'm here for.

    edit: he removed it! a crime against modern art

    #17 1 year ago

    Mass produced prints of movie scenes is a better theme for a pinball room for sure.

    Quoted from yancy:

    I'm talking about the whole scene. Like a still from a Paul Thomas Anderson film.

    Also: random snake.

    I like to hang tin signs and neon signs on the walls in my game room. It started out with just a couple here and there,and then I lost my mind.

    Boo! Sorry that I found ironic delight in the bizarre scene. Bizarre is good! I didn't criticize the actual wall art. Repost that stuff.

    #23 1 year ago

    Love the images, keep 'em coming! Sometimes you spot something on the wall in the gameroom pics thread, but it's difficult to see. This is great to see some of these up close!

    #24 1 year ago

    Love the neons and old school memorabilia! I'm a big fan of backlit translites.

    Collage. Room is a work in progress and definitely not ready for prime time, but slowly getting there.

    My wife meet Christopher Reeve several times. First time he came out of the elevator she knocked a whole cup of pencils off her desk. He knelt down and helped her pick them up. Great guy. We know Jane Seymour, she used to tell us of the times they used to hang out off the set of Somewhere in Time.

    Looks great! You can't beat neon for adding some ambience to a game room. I love the atmosphere you've created and that old digger machine is a nice touch.

    Original Italian movie poster for the movie Air Raid Wardens. The famous picture featuring Laurel & Hardy standing in front of a Genco Follies of 1940 pinball machine.

    I bought these framed original promo posters many moons ago at the Amusement Devices game room store. I was told they used to hang in their home office hallway. (They're a decent sized operator in Menasha, WI)

    I am looking to move them along, so LMK if you're interested. (I have so much stuff I need to hang, and these take up a lot of wall real estate!)

    O'gosh here we go. Anything out of the ordinary, especially advertising signs and clocks and of course neons. But not the usual run of the mill everyday stuff that everybody else has, Coke Cola, beer mirrors, Stern Neon, pinball flyers and posters......ugh!! Why be like everyone else? But to each his own I guess.
