THE LOST ARCADE

“Part scrappy, part sweet and wholly enjoyable, “The Lost Arcade” is a love letter to a vanished piece of New York, and a little wish for the future.”  
- The New York Times     

“The film meets the open door, come-as-you-are community on its own level, avoiding the forced, interwoven three-character structure that far too many works of American nonfiction seem obliged to employ.”
                               - The Village Voice                                  

“An enjoyable and nostalgic portrait of a bygone era and a local institution that has now lost the pungent atmospheric flavor that made it so unique.”
- The Hollywood Reporter

“A scrappy and ebullient documentary about the vanished video-game culture of New York City taps into the appeal of digital fun before digital life took over.”
- Variety

“Vincent’s direction is assured and not afraid of evocative flourishes of expressionism. It’s a startling piece of work”

“Vincent descends on his subject like an angel of mercy, casting light on the disenfranchised denizens that found in the arcade a home away from home.”

“Kurt Vincent and Irene Chin’s very sweet documentary employs the history of a clapped-out games arcade in lower Manhattan as a way to talk about the cultural homogenisation of big cities and capitalism’s incompatibility with diversity."
