The thing about Tetris is EVERYONE has played it. Which makes the new
documentary ECSTASY OF ORDER: THE TETRIS MASTERS a fascinating film
for everyone. Sure, a few people will immediately geek out at the
mention of Thor Ackerlund and his impact on the Tetris world with his
win at the 1990 Nintendo World Championships, but for everyone else,
there's simply no escaping the real drama of witnessing the obsession
of the competitive Tetris players profiled in the movie. From the
game's origins to modern day epic championships, the continued legacy
of Tetris is covered end to end in this immensely entertaining film.
Join us for a screening of ECSTASY OF ORDER: THE TETRIS MASTER
followed by an in-theater Tetris tournament with a real Nintendo
hooked up to the giant movie screen.
