    Movie about an arcade game
    Hello, I'm trying to find out the title of a movie I've seen many, many, many years ago possibly during the early 90's,

    What it's about? It's a american movie (of course!! ) it's about this guy in his teen or early 20's he moves to a small resort style community from the city & one night he plays an action arcade game outside the local shop, it's a ufo game, he loses it of course, then one night he has a dream about it that he's on that space craft trying to get out, after the dream he goes back to the shop to play the game & wins, can anyone tell me what this movie is called?:)

    Hi Sven,

    Just a suggestion and I am not sure this is the one, but could it be 'The Last Starfighter'?

    This film was released in 1984 and starred Lance Guest as Alex Rogan/Beta Alex and Robert Preston as Centauri.

    Alex plays and wins an arcade game called The Last Starfighter and is then recruited by Centauri to protect the galaxy from invasion.

    You can get more information by going to:

    You can see a trailer of the film there also, but you may have to endure a advertisement before the clip starts.

    If this is the film you are thinking of and want to own it, it is available on DVD

    I hope this has been of help.
