What is Obscura Day? It’s more than 150 events in 39 states and 25 countries, all on a single day, and all designed to celebrate the world’s most curious and awe-inspiring places. Access to this private collection of rare and restored vintage pinball machines usually requires an invite, but we’ve got your ticket in. Don’t worry, you won’t need a password, a special knock or a secret handshake to get through the door – Field Agent Sandi Hemmerlein has made special arrangements for an OBSCURA DAY pinball party just for the Los Angeles Obscura Society.

In an undisclosed location in Pasadena, Thumperdome is open only to those on the owner’s personal mailing list. Now we will get the chance to flip and bump our way to Pinball Wizard stardom on his vintage machines – some decades old, and many of which have been salvaged from bars, arcades, and even the trash. Pinball machines have been restored onsite and brought back to their former glory for players of all ages to experience again, or for the first time. We’ll chat with Thumperdome’s owner about the history and design of a few of his machines, and we’ll find out what goes into repairing them. We may even see some restoration work in progress!

As the longest operating and only remaining major studio in Hollywood, Paramount Pictures has been on the ground flood of every major development in film – from the advent of motion pictures, to the emergence of television through the digital revolution. During their 100-year history, they have served as the production site for thousands of notable movies and TV shows.

Their studio lot has grown considerably over the years, expanding from 26 acres and four stages to 65 acres and thirty stages. They’ve also constructed other impressive sites like the massive Blue Sky Tank and their one-of-a-king New York Street, which features ten district city neighborhood backdrops.
