8-Bit Generation: The Commodore Wars

58 Main Street

Join us for a Maine Premiere of the documentary film 8-Bit Generation.

When Jack Tramiel invented Commodore in the 1970’s, he envisioned computing for the masses and not just the upper classes. Spearheading the personal technology revolution and combatting giants like Apple and IBM, Commodore became a household name by changing the way in which we interact, create and play with computers. From the advent of the groundbreaking Atari and Tetris games to the evolution of contemporary technological design, 8 Bit Generation dives into the home computer explosion and explores Commodore’s key role in shaping the future in which we now live.

As an added bonus: one of the key figures in the movie is a 1959 graduate of the University of Maine.
