Flynn’s Arcade Opens in London


Flynn’s Arcade has hit London’s Southbank as part of an interactive promotion for the upcoming TRON: Legacy.

The arcade, a bit smaller than the version that hit the San Diego Comic-Con the past two years, is located at Queen Elizabeth Hall and features a brick facade and arcade entrance that leads visitors to a back room, decked out with a full-sized Light Cycle. Fans can also watch the trailer, play the video game and receive a complimentary photo of themselves with the Cycle (printed on the spot by the exhibit’s sponsor, HP ePrint).

Outside the arcade, a TRON-inspired light show is projected at night against the Hall, illuminating the building to make it appear as if it arrived straight off the grid. was on hand to capture a few images of the arcade (shown below) and ran into one of the very first guests, comic book author and TRON collector Martin Fisher, who had brought along a very special item from his collection: one of the actual prop helmets that Jeff Bridges wore in the original film.

The promotion, running now through Thursday, December 2nd, is open from 1pm to 9pm. More information is available through HP’s Twitter feed .
