We love PAC-MAN! In celebration of our favourite Video Game icon’s 35th Birthday on May 22nd, major celebrations around the World will be held with free plays of the Video Game, Birthday Cake and Celebrity Guests! In case you weren’t aware, he will also be appearing in eagerly-awaited Blockbuster PIXELS, which was filmed in our City last Summer!
As kids in the 1980s, Sam Brenner (Adam Sandler), Will Cooper (Kevin James), Ludlow Lamonsoff (Josh Gad), and Eddie “The Fire Blaster” Plant (Peter Dinklage) saved the world thousands of times – at 25 cents a game in the video arcades. Now, they’re going to have to do it for real. In Pixels, when intergalactic aliens discover video feeds of classic arcade games and misinterpret them as a declaration of war, they attack the Earth, using the video games as the models for their assaults – and now-U.S. President Cooper must call on his old-school arcade friends to save the world from being destroyed by PAC-MAN, Donkey Kong, Galaga, Centipede, and Space Invaders. Joining them is Lt. Col. Violet Van Patten (Michelle Monaghan), a specialist supplying the arcaders with unique weapons to fight the aliens.
All 75 Dave & Buster locations across North America will be partaking in the fun in offering free plays on the oversized PAC-MAN BATTLE ROYALE to all guests who have a Power Card. There also will be opportunities to win thousands of dollars all Summer long!
Celebrations will be held in Chicago, Tokyo, Paris, Spain and UK. For more details, visit here.
