As part of the ongoing partnership with The Five and Dime Picture Show, we decided that an evening of retro gaming was in order after the screening of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World - and we wanted everyone to join us! A room was booked, a projector was hired and no sooner had we set up but people were kicking and punching each other on Street Fighter II. In impromptu Mega Bomberman tournament was arranged and I was pleasantly surprised at the enthusiasm of the crowd watching the action.
Special mention to Knife and Folk Gallery and Nikki Stu who set up stalls of amazing artwork for people to purchase, along side Jay P who joined me in a spot of live art over the course of the evening.
