Cool Hunting Video Presents: Pins and Needles

Find your way to LA's most interesting pinball arcade in our latest video

by Cool Hunting Video in Culture on 11 January 2013

In a large warehouse in Los Angeles, behind a massive rolling metal door, there is a room full of awesome pinball machines. A labor of love, Pins and Needles is a public arcade filled with privately owned pinball machines made available for everyone to enjoy by founder Molly Atkinson. Curated by its energetic and tremendously charming founder, each machine has a unique and enchanting personality. We spent the day with Atkinson, learning about the history of pinball machines, her obsession with the sport of pinball and how she came to be quite the pinball mechanic. Most days of the week Pins and Needles opens its door from 8pm-midnight, during which time you will find Atkinson and many other enthusiasts hammering away for the high score—just don't forget your quarters.
