I was David Lightman, Matthew Broderick's character in the movie WarGames. And this was his first scene in the film.

David gets in a quick game of Galaga at 20 Grand Palace at the beginning of WarGames before running off to school. The movie takes place in Seattle, but this arcade was in Woodland Hills, California. It's currently a clothing store.
