The three-level mall was built in 1980 and is the place famously featured in Frank Zappa’s epic “Valley Girl” from his 1982 album “Ship Arriving Too Late To Save A Drowning Witch”. Side 1 of the album was recorded at Zappa’s Utility Muffin Research Kitchen studio at his home in Los Angeles, and side 2 consisted of live performances from his fall 1981 U.S. tour with added studio overdubs.
The mall was also a main setting in “Fast Times At Ridgemont High” and featured in “Terminator 2: Judgment Day”.
