He plays by intuition, the digit counters fall — that Belvoir St Theatre sure plays a mean pinball.

If you, like The Who, think you've played every pinball machine there is to play, you'd be dead wrong. This December Sydney's Belvoir St Theatre is bringing you a '70s-inspired pop-up arcade heaven to slake the lust of any pinball wizard.

Belvoir's Downstairs Theatre will be transformed into the ultimate basement games room, complete with an original NES (Nintendo Entertainment System) and a bar to quench the thirst that can only come with intense gaming. The beers will be provided by Coopers at $6 a pop, and local lads Poor Toms Gin will be slinging a deliciously retro punch for $10.

The Bumper Bar pop-up will run from December 2 right up until Christmas Eve to coincide with Belvoir's last show of the year, Girl Asleep. On top of that, the cash you drop will go to the theatre's Arts Access Program, which provides theatre tickets to students who may not be able to access them otherwise.

Then bucks gets you entry to the bar and unlimited gaming, so get those supple wrists working — there's pinball to be played.

Belvoir's Bumper Bar will run from December 2-24 in their Downstairs Theatre at Belvoir Street, Surry Hills. For more info visit belvoir.com.au
