Playland Arcade recalls unironic times when photo booths attracted kids waiting their turn at Pac-Man, instead of mustachioed men waiting for their third tallboy of PBR. Two dip-and-dunk photo booths sit in the dense, dank phalanx of buzzing and pinging arcade games. When the booths work, which is far from always, a four-shot strip runs $4. You have to pay in quarters, which is annoying, but hey! At least you can use the other four quarters from your $5 bill to play Dance Dance Revolution. 200 Santa Monica Pier, Santa Monica.
