    But a couple of things:
    - not the original backglass, I assume for legal reasons?
    Yes. The original backglass ripped off the xenomorph from Alien. According to Pinside: “Bally was sued over the game's artwork resemblance to designs by H. R. Giger. In fact, they ended up stopping production of the game early due to pending lawsuits, although 11,400 machines were still produced. A settlement was reached with Fox studios where royalties were paid to the studio for each pinball machine sold and Fox was also given approximately 3 machines to use for the promotion of the sequel to Alien, named "Aliens".”

    There was a table in a bar scene in Brooklyn Nine Nine tonight, but I could only see the side of the cabinet. Yellowish with green palm tree silhouettes.

    Movie was "White Lightning", an old Burt Reynolds flick. An old man was trying to play it. Ned Beatty told him "you gotta hit the flippers every once in while". Didn't see the name of the table, but the theme was billiards. Odd that it only had one score counter slot instead of 4.

    Whole line of tables on "The Flash" tv show but too dark to see any titles.

    I'm surprised it hasn't been mentioned yet: On Netflix, in the new series "Bonding", Episode 5 is partly playing in a pinball arcade. The actors are playing some games. One of the tables is Twilight Zone, I I recognized Fish Tales as well (actually I think there are two of them next to each other), Star Wars, I believe there is a Whoa Nellie and a Metallica as well. I couldn't identify more, as the focus was not on the tables.

    It looks like the scenes were filmed at a real arcade, I have not found anything about the filming location yet. It looks a bit like a Barcade.

    /edit: Probably not a Barcade, from the pictures I saw on Flickr for the different Barcades.

    Not sure if this has been mentioned. Space Invaders and an unspecified game(?) in the pool hall scene.

    There's an Attack From Mars in a shot in Ad Astra with Brad Pitt. In the background, kinda blurry, very brief, but there nonetheless.

    There was a Space Station machine prominently featured on The Goldbergs 10/23/19. I had never heard of Space Station before so I thought it was Space Shuttle just made generic until I looked it up on IPDB. Of course, they used generic pinball sounds instead of audio from the machine itself.

    Does anybody know if the really old machines shown in HBO's "The Plot Against America" were real? We're talking early 1940's.
