Los Angeles: Flights: Los Angeles International Airport (LAX)
Evolution location: the mall: Hawthorne Plaza, Hawthorne Boulevard, Hawthorne
All kinds of weird creatures begin to evolve when a meteorite crashes into the desert at Page, Arizona. They must be used to this kind of thing by now – what with Planet of the Apes. And The Greatest Story Ever Told, too.
Eagle-eyed sci-fi buffs might recognise the interior as Hawthorne Plaza, 12124 Hawthorne Boulevard, Hawthorne, south Los Angeles, to which John Anderton (Tom Cruise) took precog Agatha (Samantha Morton) in Steven Spielberg’s Minority Report. You’d be hard pressed, though, to recognise its quarter mile-long roof, which was used for the freeway chase in The Green Hornet.
