Places with photo booths?

amelie photo booth zorroJayme emails:

[M]ight you know of photo booths in the capital district? I'm not looking for a rental but an honest to goodness take my quarters (or dollars) and snap my photo photo booth.
Any hints would be welcome.
I think there's on in the theater in Crossgates & maybe Colonie Mall but I'm wondering about others?

We're pretty sure we've seen them at the malls, but we can't think of other places. Have a suggestion for Jayme? Please share!

(And be sure to say hello to Nino Quincampoix.)

Here is a website that has a locator for all old school type photobooths (such as was in the movie Amelie).

Unfortunately, it doesn't look like there are many locally. But there might be some digital versions at the malls.

Another mall, I guess, but I have it on good authority ( a local 10 year old) there's one at Rotterdam Square near the fountain pool.

Wolf's 111 has one in their game room, but you have to buy a token-card to use it. I'm positive Colonie Center has one, too, but not in the movies, I think I've seen it downstairs by Barnes & Noble or the kids play place... Can't quite recall the exact location.

Saratoga Photobooth has authentic style, digital photobooths available for rent or set to take various dollar amounts. They bring them to events and I think they have a place on Caroline St that's open by appt. I've used them for a number of events and they're always a huge hit.

There's one at Clifton Park Center mall, in the hallway that leads to Boscov's.

As far as I know, there aren't any old-school ones locally. The ones in Colonie and Crossgates are digital and have some options that are less ridiculous as far as backgrounds (I think the Colonie one will let you do just a plain picture) but as they're digital it doesn't have that photobooth look.

There is a machine in downtown Saratoga in the marketplace building, downstairs across from where Divinyl is now, but the only time I tried to use it wasn't working. That one was the closest to an old-school film-style one I've seen around.

Otherwise there are a few in like, Northampton MA. Which is worth a daytrip but yeah.

Thanks for all the leads!

@kater -- where are the photo booths in Northampton?

... I tend to ask questions that make the person think about what they just said. I ask it sweetly and in a tone that notes confusion on my part. I have been called honey in the office and asked the person, " Can I ask what you mean when you call me honey? Because you don't call John honey." It calls out that he's treating you differently for being a woman. If he still doesn't get it, you can be more direct: "I appreciate that you respect my work and treat me equally, but I wouldn't want others to think otherwise based on how you address me."
