Follow-Up of the Day: Caine’s Arcade Gets a Real Pinball Machine: The incredible story of Caine’s Arcade just keeps getting better.
After his cardboard arcade became THE hot spot in East L.A., 9-year-old Caine Monroy was invited to visit pinball shop Pins and Needles, where owner Molly introduced him to pro flipper — and world champ — Keith Elwin. Then, she offered him his choice of vintage pinball machines, valued at up to $3,000, to round out his business. (Caine has yet to decide which machine to call his own.)
Meanwhile, donors around the world have pledged more than $100,000 for Caine’s Scholarship Fund, announced just three days ago by filmmaker Nirvan Mullick to help send Caine to college.
Finally, the Caine’s Arcade Facebook page has two intriguing announcements: Official T-shirts are in the works (so don’t be fooled by knockoffs), and the Caine’s Arcade Theme Song is available for download, with 100 percent of profits going toward the Scholarship Fund.
Watch an interview with Caine here.
Hooray!
