Chasing Ghosts, a documentary set to screen next week at the Sundance Film Festival, takes a nostalgic look at the golden age of the arcade.

Those were the days when video game play began with the drop of a quarter amid the smell of adolescent bodies and the sound of electronica gunfire.
Chasing Ghosts

Out of this 1980s scene emerged a class of player that gained fame and a following as top scorers of popular games such as Pac-Man, Space Invaders and Donkey Kong Jr.

These arcade warriors--who predated today's sophisticated home gaming systems--might have been forgotten were it not for a friendship and a photo, which together laid the foundation for director Lincoln Ruchti and producer Michael Verrechia's first feature-length project.
