Malls / Shopping Centers In Los Angeles Offer A Variety Of Filming Possibilities
Shopping malls or centers in Los Angeles refer to one or more buildings forming a complex of stores with sidewalks or interconnected walkways enabling visitors to easily move from unit to unit. Car-friendly strip malls became popular in the 1920's, while the concept of multi-level enclosed malls began to spring up after World War II. In addition to large "anchor" department stores, malls draw customers because of smaller or boutique type stores specializing in products like furnishings, antiques, aquariums, art, books, draperies, fabrics, flowers, kitchen & bath items, lamps, specialty toys, etc. Malls often offer other "camera-ready" amenities such as food courts, fountains, courtyards and large enclosed spaces where sets may be designed.
