Arcade fire: Classic games at MoMI
Wed Dec 24 2008
Who isn't looking for glorious ways to kill vacation time? Astoria's Museum of the Moving Image (MoMI) is a film venue currently undergoing renovation; programming is scarce. But now on playable display until further notice, the museum is offering 14 arcade classics, including Asteroids (1979), Berzerk (1980), Centipede (1981), Defender (1980), Donkey Kong (1981), Frogger (1981), Missile Command (1980), Ms. Pac-Man (1982), Qix (1981), Space Invaders (1978), Super Breakout (1978) and Tron (1982). They're closed on Christmas and New Year's Day, but have hours during the rest of the week; admission is free. A dollar gets you four tokens, which is deeply old-school. And if you plan to rock Defender, get in line, pally.
