This video cassette was found in the rubble of a mostly demolished Rolling Acres Mall. The tape was supposedly sent to potential buyers to help showcase the many beautiful features of the mall.
I acquired this video in early 2017 but it wasn’t until September that I finally hooked up my VCR to watch it. I had no idea what was on the tape and upon watching I was absolutely flooded with emotion and memories of Rolling Acres Mall. I watched the video at least 5 times that night and dozens more in the weeks that followed, it just never really got old.
Here are a few of the highlights:
- Smooth Jazz by Pat Metheny
- The Janitor cleaning the fountain in the court of twelve trees
- The flickering storefront lights at the USPS store
- Escalators in motion
- The chandelier
- Picnic Place
- People shopping
This video is around 14 minutes long and it’s really worth watching the whole thing. It’s a full video walkthrough of an alive Rolling Acres Mall albeit long past it’s prime days.
