Obscura Day 2015: Free Pinball at the Sunshine Laundromat

One of the greatest pinball machine collections in New York is hidden in the back of this Greenpoint laundromat. On Obscura Day the pinball is free!

The reviews are glowing. "One of the finest pinball machine collections in the United States", "Has 6 of the best pinball machines ever made. AMAZING." and  "20 or so of the best 90's Bally/Williams pins you will ever see, plus a Big Bang Bar and some top-end Sterns to mix it up."

This is not a museum or arcade but the incredible pinball collection inside the Sunshine Laundromat, lovingly curated and maintained by Peter, the warm and friendly manager of the laundromat. Among the games are some of the greatest pinball games ever made including Twilight Zone, Addams Family, and Theater of Magic. 

On Obscura Day the machines will be free, so you can play to your heart's desire without worrying about losing too many balls. The laundromat may be a bit warm, as it is currently undergoing work to accommodate even more Pinball machines as well as a bar!

The event is free, and you can show up whenever without a ticket, but we request that you RSVP so that we have a sense of planned attendance.
