Abandoned Malls From Around the World

Hawthorne Plaza Mall – Hawthorne, California

Hawthorne Plaza Mall closed in March 1999. In 2016, the Hawthorne City Hall commission announced their plans to demolish the Hawthorne Plaza to create something like the outside Farmers Market in Los Angeles, California.

Despite it being shut down, you may have already seen this mall without knowing it…

You may have seen glimpses of this mall in your favorite movies, music videos and TV shows, including The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, Teen Wolf, Agents of Shield, Rush Hour, and most recently, BTS’ “Black Swan.” As seen in the picture above, the mall served as the perfect filming location for many shows like Teen Wolf.
