Caine’s Arcade

The first time I watched Caine’s Arcade I completely fell in love with it. It’s a very touching and inspiring story. It shows how important it is to follow your passion and to never give up no matter how hard it gets. Caine has a birght future ahead of him and I’m really looking forward to following his progress!

Caine Monroy is a 9-year old boy who spent his summer vacation building an elaborate DIY cardboard arcade in his dad’s used auto parts store.

Caine dreamed of the day he would have lots of customers visit his arcade, and he spent months preparing everything, perfecting the game design, making displays for the prizes, designing elaborate security systems, and hand labeling paper-lunch-gift-bags. However, his dad’s autoparts store (located in an industrial part of East LA) gets almost zero foot traffic, so Caine’s chances of getting a customer were very small, and the few walk in customers that came through were always in too much of a hurry to get their auto part to play Caine’s Arcade. But Caine never gave up.
