    The first film to thoroughly show the streets and landmarks in Atlantic City, New Jersey, that correspond with the original properties featured in the board game Monopoly.

    With the cooperation of Hasbro, The City of Atlantic City, and a variety of other entities, I briefly delve into the game's origins, and how the lack of available information prompted me to drive more than a thousand miles from my home, in Canada, to film the streets and landmarks, as they appear, today (I also talk about the streets that have disappeared, or are in danger of disappearing, on account of urban renewal).

    All images and interiors used with the permissions of Hasbro, The Library of the Religious Society of Friends (U.K.), New Jersey Transit, The Atlantic City Police Department, Atlantic City curator Allen 'Boo' Pergament, the Management of Atlantic City's Pier Shops at Caesars, James G. Howes, Julie Dunn, John Poland, and J. Matthew Horton (if there's anyone I've forgotten, I am sure to hear about it).
