Mountain View CHM Screening Friday, June 23: Easy to Learn, Hard to Master

Recommended Posts

Friday, June 23, 2017 Film Screening of 'Easy to Learn, Hard to Master" and Q&A with Filmmaker Bruno Grampa and Narrator Bil Herd


Atari has an impressive collection of “firsts”: it is responsible for producing the first coin-operated video game, the first general-purpose console to win the market, and one of the first marriages between the video game and movie industries. It was also the fastest-growing company in US history at its peak and contributed to a crash that reshaped the video game industry. Easy to Learn, Hard to Master follows the story of Atari and the dynamic team that charted the company’s course. Produced by The 8bit Generation Project, the film features interviews with Nolan Bushnell, Allan Alcorn, Warner VP Manny Gerard, and Former Atari CEO Ray Kassar.


The 8bit Generation Project is dedicated to research, collection, and presentation of history from the era of the 8-bit microprocessor, popular in machines from the early 1970s to the end of the 1980s.


Executive Producer Bruno Grampa and Narrator Bil Herd will join Museum CEO John Hollar for audience Q&A.


Join us for Friday Nights @CHM before the program! Enjoy dinner at Off the Grid's street food market and drinks from our Cloud Bistro.


Museum exhibits are open from 5 to 9 p.m.

Sounds great! I used to live in Mountain View, but now it's thousands of miles away...


Thanks for posting the excerpt; I look forward to watching the complete E2LH2M at some point.
