I found myself near the Puente Hills Mall in City of Industry, California (Original Filming Location) and wanted to compare how it is now in 2015 compared to 1985 and reenact some of my favorite scenes. The Twin Pines Mall/Lone Pine Mall scene in Back to the Future is my favorite scene in all of the Back to the Future movies.
It's here in Hill Valley we are introduced to Doc Brown and see the Delorean time machine for the first time and at 88 mph. We witness the first time traveling dog experiments taking place. We also see an amazing car chase in the mall parking lot between Marty and the Libyan terrorists.
