del amo mall

from jackie brown posted in movies by chewing_the_scenery

The money exchange in Tarantino's Jackie Brown takes place at Torrance, California's Del Amo Mall (or Del Amo Fashion Center® as it is now called), specifically a store called Billingsley's that isn't real. The mall is billed in the movie as the largest indoor mall in the world, although since Jackie Brown takes place in 1995, the Mall of America in Minneapolis had already taken over that distinction in 1992.

Frank Black grew up in the area, and his love song to the Del Amo Mall, "The Hostess with the Mostest," is on his second album Teenager of the Year.
