FULL TILT Pinball Documentary Featuring The Ottawa Pinball Arcade

Post by PinMeds »

After a couple of years of filming, production, and a tour of the Film Festival Circuit, we can finally share this incredible documentary put together by Ben Willms and his team.

While he is younger than most of the games in the Arcade, Ben has a true passion and connection with the 70's, and Pinball in particular, that goes far beyond his years on Earth in this Time-Space. He even wrote and performed the theme song himself, for which there will be a full length version recorded and released soon.

We are excited to continue working with Ben as we continue with Media content 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 the Ottawa Pinball Arcade in quantity and quality.

Watching it myself just now, it seems like a lifetime ago that we were putting together the Arcade expansion and moving the Pinball Medics facility to the back.

Having just completed the renovations in early March 2020, mere days prior to our 19 month closure for the Pandemic, much has in fact changed since the filming was complete.

More than half the games that were in the lineup for the Expansion back then have been sold or moved to other locations, we continued with more extensive renovations to the Arcade and the adjoining Neighbourhood Pub, and we have replaced the missing games with an even better selection of even more upgraded games.

But the Vibe has remained the same, just heavier.

That's a great vid! We met Ben last week on pinball night in Ottawa - saw him play, damn good player!

The Neighborhood Pub sure was a fun night out! They had a great singer, next time I'll ask for some Cranberries songs!

Now, for 10$ unlimited pinball on Wednesdays, can't ask for more! Bonus, if you need some last minute pinball parts, they'll probably have them in stock.

Such a great video.
Mike is such a helpful and passionate guy.

Made it to a Wednesday night last week and was impressed with the setup at the arcade.
So happy to give local pinball some support and attention.
Thanks for sharing!
