An arcade is a collection of arches supported by columns or piers. A blind arcade refers to an arcade that is built against a solid wall. Blind arcades are a recognizable part of Roman and Gothic architecture. One of the earlier examples of a European shopping arcade is found in Oxford, England and was opened in 1774, and is still active today. When thought of, Greek and Roman architecture is one of the biggest symbols for arcades.

In the movie industry, Greek and Roman films will almost always display an arcade of some form at one point, if not more, of the film.
