Dead Mall Serves as Film Set
The new movie Observe and Report was filmed in a dead mall, according to joblo.com. From the description, it sounds like a classic dead mall scenario:
"Interestingly enough, the mall is not completely abandoned since there are still three stores that remain open on either side of the mall. This means the inside of the mall is still open to the public and has become the local 'hangout' for elderly mall-walkers."At least someone has a use for dead malls, huh? Mall developers nationwide should begin petitioning the movie industry to make use of their near-abandoned but still-interesting spaces. At least, until the movie industry collapses, as it inevitably will.
