california extreme

This weekend on Sunday July 14 from 2:00 – 3:00 PM I’ll be at California Extreme in Santa Clara, CA, screening both Pinball Donut Girl and Wade Krause: Pinball Artist films.  I think Wade will be there too, and I’m hoping other cast and crew will join us as well.

and I’ll bring DVDs!

If you would like me to bring your DVD to you personally at CAX rather than shipping, please send me a note or fb me or leave a comment here to let me know.  Hope to see you at the show!

Helping people see the beauty of pinball more clearly than ever, one of the Visible Pinball games from the Pacific Pinball Museum and six other vintage games were featured at the Cinequest Film Festival Opening Night Gala.

The real Captain Fantastic, Chris Kuntz of Pinball Pirate brought the games to San Jose.

Don’t forget you can come out and have more pinball at Cinequest by coming to the Friday 3/8 6:45 PM screening of Wade Krause: Pinball Artist at Camera 12 in San Jose, or the Saturday 1:45 screening. See you at the movies!

Come hang out with me and Harrison…

Apparently Harrison Ford heard that Wade Krause: Pinball Artist will be playing at Cinequest in San Jose in a couple weeks, and decided to attend.

Seriously, there are ton of interesting events at Cinequest, including a live talk with Harrison Ford, who is being given an award. Consider coming to more of the festival than just the screenings of Wade Krause: Pinball Artist.
