Carolina Circle Christian School

From March-May of 2005, I attempted to film my Back to the Future the Second movie at my dead school Pendle Hill Christian School. Unfortunately, it fell through and I was only able to film the first 5 minutes.

If it all went through, I would have had to temporarly convert the school into Carolina Circle Mall. As you can see in the above picture taken on closing day, it wasn't going to be easy. I had to figure out a way to put removable green/pink paint on the walls etc. The tin-can lights could easily have been done by using real tin-cans and wire them up. Another hard thing to build would be a carousel that could fit in the school's multi-purpose big room. Didn't get that far.

Because the movie mainly takes place in 1994, I had to make it look like 1994. You can download an actual prop from my movie below. It would have been a Montgomery Ward ad sign placed in the mall corridor (aka school hallway).

I don't know if your school could have pulled it off. You need to find another dead mall as a stand in.
