Directors: Kurt Vincent and Irene Chin. USA. 2015. 80 min UK Premiere Chinatown Fair opened as a penny arcade on Mott Street, New York City in 1944. Over the decades,the legendary gathering place, known for its dancing chicken, became an institution, surviving turf wars between rival gangs, rising rents and the explosive growth of home gaming systems like Xbox and Playstation that shuttered all other arcades in the city. But as the neighborhood gentrified, this haven for a diverse community faced its strongest challenge, inspiring its biggest devotees to next-level greatness.
