RMIT Culture and RMIT Future Play Lab are excited to invite all gaming enthusiasts to a unique screening at the iconic Capitol of Steven Lisberger's ground-breaking 1982 arcade game classic, TRON.
Hear from RMIT Future Play Lab gamemaker Troy Innocent, RMIT PlaceLab’s Kiri Delly and multimedia specialist Uyen Nguyen prior to the screening, as they discuss how TRON was lightyears ahead in the use of AI and its predictions of society’s adaptation of technology and games.
After the screening, embark on an exciting journey through Melbourne's CBD, where you'll uncover a trail of five hidden arcade machines made by Melbourne artists, designers and musicians starting from the foyer of The Capitol all the way to Little Collins St.
Each arcade machine has been transformed into a unique, playable artwork – race to catch a tram, immerse yourself in Indigenous language learning, unleash your creativity by making music from emojis, engage in epic battles with Jukebot or explore the enigmatic Yomeci Hole.
Presented in partnership with RMIT Culture, RMIT Future Play Lab, City of Melbourne and Melbourne International Games Week.
When: Tuesday, 19 September from 5:30pm
Where: The Capitol
