There's not much I like about the new Lifestyle wing of the Del Amo Mall. It houses overpriced merchandise and does not really offer much to people like myself who are on a limited budget (or just refuse to pay $30 for a t-shirt). But one part of the new section I do like is the AMC Theater. The design is pretty nice. I love the big courtyard and the lounge chairs that are all around the area. I remember when this section of the mall was the most popular, back before they tore it down and rebuilt it. There was a section that had paintings of faces that stared at shoppers as they went up and down stairs, the very small UA theaters, and the dome shaped fountain. I also remember the giant robot toy machine that was inside the Woolworths. I bought a toy knife with plastic holster there when I was a boy. Despite the nice architecture of the new theater, I haven't seen a movie there yet because nothing good has come out for so long. Man I wish I had taken pictures of the old section of the mall before they blocked it off.
