See How Tron's Original Arcade Looks Today

In the 1982 film Tron, nearly everything takes place, in one way or another, inside a joint called Flynn's Arcade.

While at E3 last week, video game historian Scott Patterson decided to skip the noise and light and go and see how the building used for filming is looking today.

It's...not bad! It's still clearly the same place, even if it is now a Japanese restaurant, and not a video game arcade where one machine has the ability to suck you into a life and death battle for survival.

    No it doesn't. Tron Legacy, yes. They get into the Grid in the original film via a laser thing which is in the ENCOM labs. Flynn's arcade is a minor location in comparison.

      This is exactly what I thought. The entire premise is Flynn trying to prove his code was stolen by sneaking into Encom after hours where the digitizer beam was. Has Plunkett actually seen the original or just full of hot air?

        I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt, and assume that he's seen it, but has just forgotten, because he's a fool.

      Thank you for correcting that obvious error. My blood-pressure is coming back under control now... Thank you sir.

      Might as well have, there was only one true matrix movie after all

    Pretty dissapointing that it's a restaurant and not say an...arcade.
