King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters
A day before the The Kong Off goes down in Denver, we're bringing one of the best documentaries we've ever played back for a one night engagement! The King of Kong is like the best narrative movie, except better because it's all real! After the screening, head over to Pinball Jones for some pinball action too!


Seth Gordon's documentary The King of Kong follows the exploits of the two best Donkey Kong players in America. Billy Mitchell has held the world record for the popular video game for over 20 years. The film covers his rise to prominence, and the circle of associates he keeps in the Twin Galaxies organization, which serves as the official referee and scorekeeper of the electronic gaming world; within the organization, Mitchell is highly revered for his prowess at a number of games. Eventually Steve Wiebe, with time on his hands now that he finds himself without a job, decides to seriously hunker down and challenge Mitchell's record. Gordon gets close to both men, and shows how the passionate arcade subculture harbors very powerful feelings about both of them.
