Fresh off an Award Winning run on the Festival circuit, Pinball Medics & The Ottawa Pinball Arcade are thrilled to announce that FULL TILT, the Ben Willms documentary featuring our location, is now available for us to share with the General Public!
The filming took place for over a year at the Arcade and the Pinball Medics Store, and was completed days before we closed the doors for 19 months due to the Pandemic. While we had little foresight of the changes we would soon have to navigate, the Spirit of the Arcade shines even more brightly from those simpler times in our not so distant past, and helps illuminate our way forward. With the Arcade open once again, the timing could not be better.
This is the beginning of an Incredible new series of Media content we will be involved with, dedicated to Canadian Pinball Culture, featuring more on the continuing upgrades and processes used on our machines, the Arcade, the upcoming Ottawa Montreal Pinball Museum opening this Spring, and a soon to be announced Pinball Arcade coming to the Island of Montreal with enough games to rival Ottawa in numbers and quality.
Stay tuned, all will be shared here as soon as it’s available!
I really enjoyed watching this documentary!
Great job capturing the lights, sounds and addictive nostalgic excitement that keeps so many of us coming back for more! Each game is a tactile time capsule where the player improves their skills while struggling against gravity and the mean relentless silver ball. Now I’m hyped to find another pin to to toss my quarters into.
