So long!

After years in the heart of Granville Street's entertainment district it appears Movieland Arcade has quietly and permanently shut its doors.

The iconic video game arcade was a popular landmark amongst fans of classic arcades, but it seems that wasn't enough to sustain it.

Signs advertising the property as being for lease have appeared in the windows, though the arcade games themselves appear to still be in place. The phone number listed for it has been disconnected as well.

Movieland was known for a bit more than its video games, with porn playing in back rooms on old film projectors up until recently.

As a well-known landmark, a short film was made about it several years ago.
