The theater at 7 Ludlow Street picked a series of films, both classic and forgettable, that date back to the ’80s. The series is in conjuction with the Metrograph’s showing of “The Lost Arcade,” a documentary about the Chinatown Fair. Some of the highlights include: “Mortal Kombat” (1995): The hit movie adaptation of the fighting game was praised for its serious take on the franchise, even though it featured PG-13 level action. “Wreck-it Ralph,” (2012): The animated Disney movie takes a fun look at the minds of characters who live inside the arcades. “Tron”(1982): The ’80s cult classic about a neon-colored world inside an arcade can’t be missed. “WarGames” (1983): “Would you like to play a game?” This movie, starring Matthew Broderick, mixed political, Cold War suspense with good old-fashioned computer gaming. If you go: “Shall We Play a Game?” runs at the Metrograph from Friday through August 18. $15, 7 Ludlow St., 212-660-0312, metrograph.com By Ivan Pereira email@example.com @IvanPer4 Ivan has been a staff reporter with amNewYork since May 2012 and covers breaking news, politics and enterprise stories.
