Join us at The Chicagoland™ Antique Advertising, Slot-Machine & Jukebox Show (a.k.a. Chicagoland Coin Op Show). We invite you to stop by Midwest Pinball’s exhibit, talk to Rich, and see some examples of games we have for sale. We plan to bring two bring two older, electro-mechanical games, two newer games, and a 1970’s Western-themed gun game. If you would like to purchase a game and pick it up from us at the show, we can make arrangements to do that.
About the Show
The Chicagoland Coin Op Show features coin operated collectibles such as: antique slot machines, jukeboxes, coke machines, gumball machines, penny arcade machines, music boxes, video games and our personal favorite…Pinball Machines!
This is a large show with a lot to see. The show fills two exhibition halls at the Pheasant Run Resort Hotel. From gumball machines to pinball machines to antique collectibles, there is something to interest attendees of all ages. Vendors in the lobbies sell coffee cakes, baked goods, fudge, and jerky.
Past shows have exhibited band boxes containing marionettes playing big band instruments in time with records, coin-operated scales used at general stores and butchers, and tin mutoscope machines playing short movies with a carousel of photographic cards. Last year, a vendor displayed one of the very first jukeboxes ever built. This mechanical jukebox required the user to wind it up and select from one of twenty metal cylinder records.
