Kurt Vincent was shooting around the location of the old, defunct Chinatown Fair arcade this week, for his movie about the downfall of that beloved game center, when he discovered that it was actually not as dead as it seemed. Awkward!

Vincent posted on his blog that he'd heard rumors of the Fair being reopened, and then ran into who he believes to be the new owner on the site. He was there cleaning out the space and moving games in.

For NYC residents, this means a return of one of the fixtures of game culture. For Vincent, it means a storyline change for the movie. And, best of all, for Chinatown Fair, it means somebody is cleaning the place.
