"A look at one of America’s strangest tourist destinations for movie geeks"
The Toronto Star
"The first time I saw the mall was by plane."
"It's an important location, not just for horror films but film period. A lot of people make the trek to come check this place out."
"We had to walk through that treacherous kind of path to get there... seeing it in reality almost puts you in the film..."
"He'd rather been here then go to Disneyland or somewhere."
Cinemall is a short documentary about the ultimate movie location.
"And Gavin Shaw`s Cinemall is an appealingly sideways look at the Monroeville Mall, where George A. Romero shot his iconic zombie movie Dawn Of The Dead, and its obsessive fans. (Yes, the mall has fans. The mall. Let that sink in for a second)" - Norman Wilner, NOW Magazine
The Monroeville Mall is located 12 miles outside of Pittsburgh, PA.
Every year hundreds of movie fans from around the world make a pilgrimage to visit the mall ever since it "starred" in George A. Romero's 1978 zombie classic "Dawn of the Dead"
The line between fantasy and reality is obscured as they retrace the footsteps of the fictional characters within the movie and look for key places where the action took place.
When they enter the mall... they enter the movie.
