Where did you find that image of the old arcade venue? Maybe I could use that info to help track it down.

Someone in this reddit thread claimed that this place was demolished, and if that's the case we might be shit out of luck lol, which is unfortunate because I've actually always wondered where this place was too because it looked nothing like the movie theater.
The way Adam talks about it in the PMs almost implies that this location was closer to him than Danbury 16, but I could be misinterpreting that.
Someone pointed out also that the vents on the ceiling in the image matched up with the ones in the videos Adam took.
Recently re-watched the videos, and the vents appear to be on the wall rather than the ceiling as shown in that image, but the video isn't very good quality so I can't really tell if that inward "triangular" slant is there to identify it as the ceiling in that photo. The tiles sure do look the same. The walls are green in the video, with a black trim, but that's something that can easily be changed.
So, perhaps the DDR machine was in a different room, or not in the same building as that picture at all.
Here's the archive of his videos if you want to compare yourself:

My doubts are cleared up, I'm basically 100% certain that that is the same building and that the DDR machine was a few feet to the left of the entrance into that other part of the building.

So, I managed to find the location of this old arcade. I just reverse google searched the image and clicked "all sizes" and it took me to this site:

It was for an auction house that opened in 2015, apparently in the same venue as "Connecticut Golf Land & Games" was in.
I found this Foursquare page for it:

Scrolling through some of the pics, it's clearly the same arcade as the one Adam Lanza went to. You cannot mistake that gaudy puke-green paintjob.

I was even able to find a 1984 commercial for the place:

Here it was, at 95 Hartford Turnpike, Vernon, CT 06066 in 2010:

According to the satellite images, it appears that the building was actually demolished in circa 2020-2021, and they actually have plans to rebuild the place under the same brand:

So, basically confirmed at this point that those DDR videos on his hard drive were filmed at Golf Land.
However, it's impossible that this was the arcade that he was referring to in his PMs. Golf Land closed permanently in 2014, and there are images from Foursquare of it being active in 2011 and 2012.
Besides, this arcade was about an hours drive from his house, so I doubt he made regular trips to this location, but I could be wrong.

As it turns out, Adam wasn't the only guy who filmed himself playing at that specific DDR console lol.

Yeah that place was roughly 50 miles from his house. I wonder how often he went there.

If I had to guess, probably not too often. I believe that all of his DDR videos at that location were filmed on the same day.
