Caine’s Arcade, A Wonderful & Inspiring Film About A Boy Who Runs His Own Cardboard Arcade

Caine’s Arcade is a heartwarming film short about Caine, an enterprising 9-year old boy who made an elaborate cardboard arcade inside his dad’s used auto parts shop in East Los Angeles. The magic really happens when the arcade’s first (and only) customer, filmmaker Nirvan Mullick, arranges for a special surprise for Caine in the way of a customer flashmob. The film premiered October 28, 2011 at DIY Days at UCLA and both Caine and Nirvan were in attendance. The full story is at the Caine’s Arcade website and donations are being taken for a scholarship fund to benefit Caine’s education. The best part: you can go visit Caine and his wonderful handmade arcade if you are in the Los Angeles area. Be sure to bring cash for the Fun Pass.
