Another not quite a film one, but an Atari ST is sitting on the desk in the spooky office in the BBC4 series Black Lake at the moment.. The main star tried to turn it on in the first episode by hammering the keyboard and when it didn't spring to life she gave up. She was probably waiting for Siri to talk to her ;).

The movie "23: nothing is what it seems" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/23_%28film%29) contains a very short scene with a 1040:

It's about a German hacker (Karl Koch).

It is a show about unsolved criminal cases.
I wonder if this was the original victims flat or some requisite....

Not quite a film but just realised this Cee Lo Green song mentions Atari :-)
The song was written by Cee Lo Green and Bruno Mars about 10 years ago... It contains the F word a lot so might be NSFW or younger audiences!
