About this Event
Reserve your visit to Chicago Gamespace to experience the LIGHT CYCLES: 40 Years of TRON in Games & Film exhibition!
40 years ago, a film and video game electrified theaters and arcades across the world by taking audiences - for the first time - inside a computer game. Computing concepts were transformed in the public mind from abstractions into exciting, vivid illustrations of what cyberspace could be through pioneering computer generated imagery. Chicago Gamespace is pleased to present LIGHT CYCLES: 40 Years of TRON in Games and Film, an exhibition of TRON arcade, computer and console games. It begins with the first arcade game developed by a young team at Chicago’s Bally/Midway led by Bill Adams, Atish Ghosh, George Gomez, and highlights more than a dozen TRON multimedia pieces.
Admission also includes entry to the Chicago Gamespace collection which highlights the most important games from history including Space Invaders, Pac-Man, Defender, Centipede, Pole Position, Oregon Trail, Super Mario Brothers, Tetris, Zelda, Mortal Kombat 2, Doom, NBA Jam, Cruis'N USA, and Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time among others.
