Merge - The History of Atari

Merge

Runs October 08, 2016 - November 13, 2016

In 1976, Atari was the fastest growing company in the history of the United States, an arcade manufacturer with a workplace fueled by pot smoking, jacuzzi parties and nobody wearing socks. When they have to sell themselves to Warner Bros. to stay afloat, they quickly realize that corporate cash comes with baggage, as they lose a piece of the identity that made them who they were in the first place. And what’s worse… they have to start wearing socks. Merge is the story of a small band of programmers who stand up and fight back against the very company that saved them from bankruptcy, in a battle that threatens to crash an entire industry.

Street parking in the vicinity of The Den Theatre is very limited. A more dependable option is to use the parking lot at 1215 N. Paulina, one block from The Den, where theatre patrons can park for a flat rate of $10 (cash, Visa, MasterCard, or Discover).

 


 

Marty Goldberg will be on stage at the end of each of Oct. 20 & Oct. 21 shows in a one on one "author" talk on Atari, the consumer video game market crash, etc.
