    Question Time travel movie from 70s or 80s or 90s

    I'm looking for the name of a time travel movie that I watched anywhere between 1983 and 1990.

    The movie features 2 guys playing chess against each other.
    The time machine is a fully enclosed pod with a door with a big key on the outside. At the end of thr movie the 1 guy tries to time travel but the 2nd guy comes up to the time machine before it jumps and pulls out the key saying "check mate!" Without the key the guy can't time travel back and is left in a random time. The end.

    Hope someone here have seen this movie.

    Thanks!

    Sounds like Nicholas Meyer's 1979 film Time After Time. Near the end Stevenson (played by David Warner) says "I'm sorry HG. It's checkmate... and you've lost again."

    Classic.
