Description

Official Selection: SXSW Film Festival

"A fascinating look back at the industry's history."- Den of Geek

"An insightful, yet easy-going dive into the dogma of the arcade industry." - Discussing Films

Insert Coin is the amazing behind-the-scenes story of one of the greatest video game studios of all time - Midway Games. Led by the "godfather of video games" Eugene Jarvis, the company pioneered the concept of live action gaming, kickstarting a new arcade boom and grossing billions of dollars in the process with massive hits like Mortal Kombat and NBA Jam - franchises still popular today.

Through intimate and often hilarious interviews with the people who were there, we witness how a small, tight-knit group of friends deal with next level success and the roller coaster ride that comes with it.
