Hi Everyone!

It's day three and thanks to you we already hit 35% of our funding goal and have 57 backers in total!  We have a huge smile. Thank you! 

If you are one of the first 57 backers be sure to log on Kickstarter to find your special present for supporting us from the get go!! 

Here is the comment of the day, coming from John Hague.

"I was playing Soul Caliber 2 at a near empty arcade in Times Square around 2003. For once there was someone on the machine who knew what he was doing. We traded rounds for an hour, before he turned to me and asked, "Do you play at Chinatown?" He drew me a map on the back of a page of his move list. I went there for years. While I'm sad to hear it's closing down, I'm happy to hear you're trying to honor the place. Happy to support you on this one."

The comment is exactly why we are making this movie!   Please share your own Chinatown Fair stories or what brought you to our project on the comments page.

And again, many thanks for your profound gesture of generosity!! 

It means so much to us.

Please continue to share the project with your friends. Lets hit the goal early!
