For those with Showtime, new art house/indie film "Chasing Ghosts: Beyond the Arcade" debuts tonight: http://www.sho.com/site/schedules/product_page.do?seriesid=0&episodeid=1...

I'm going to try and at least record it.

"Filmmaker Lincoln Ruchti's documentary takes a nostalgic look back at the 1980s, the "golden age" of arcade games, when high-scoring whizzes were briefly celebrities and even national championships of joystick competitors were spawned - only to be eclipsed by the rise of home computer games."

Not sure if I agree with that premise, but I'm still interested in seeing it.
