We’re proud to announce that Caine’s Arcade is coming to DIY DAYS LA. Not only will Nirvan Mullick premiere his new doc but Caine himself will be setting up and running his arcade at DIY DAYS for all to play.
A message from Caine’s Arcade director Nirvan Mullick
I’m excited to premiere “Caine’s Arcade” at DIY Days, a mini-documentary about an elaborate cardboard arcade made by a 9 year old boy in his dad’s used auto parts store. Caine had almost no customers until the internet joined together to make Caine’s day. Caine will be at DIY Days in person to staff his cardboard arcade, and will also be joining me on stage to answer any questions. Come and get your Fun Pass!
9 year old Caine spent the summer building an elaborate DIY arcade out of cardboard boxes inside his dad’s used auto parts store in East LA, and dreaming of having lots of customers come play his games. Unfortunately, the auto store gets almost zero foot traffic, so no one came to play. Then one day, the internet found out about Caine’s Arcade, and decided to surprise him with some unexpected customers, flashmob style. Caine’s Arcade shows what can happen when imagination meets cardboard, inspiring the internets to help a 9 year old’s dream come true.
