In 1998, pinball was dying, thanks to a saturated market and shrinking player base. Williams, the world’s largest pinball manufacturer, was considering abandoning the game in favor of the more lucrative video slot machine business. Then came ‘Pinball 2000,’ a clever attempt at resuscitating pinball that failed just at the moment a lot of people thought it might succeed. Including interviews with legends of the pinball industry, PINBALL is a story about personality, passion, and a bold, dizzying success followed by a stunning failure.
