There's more to Stranger Things' Starcourt Mall than meets the eye

There's a reason why the Starcourt Mall, the principal location for the third season of Stranger Things looks so real: it's built inside a real shopping mall. Specifically, it's built inside of Georgia's Gwinnett Place Mall, which was just a year before the latest season of Netflix's show is set.

Dismissed, eager fans have managed to sneak in to take photos and video of the interior, and the attention to detail is stunning.

Burger King and Hot Dog on a Stick (complete with their own '80s uniforms), as well as original creations like Scoops Ahoy, which Apparently a boat-shaped restaurant booth that you can only see in the show.

Along with other historically believable shops, there are almost a half-dozen extra stores that were built and filled with period-appropriate signage and products, but they never appeared on camera. Typically, film sets are not a full structure or room; it's cheaper to build the bare minimum needed for a shot. That Netflix opted to build out of the big stores that would make it impossible for them to make an unfinished background.

One such unused store is a WixandStix. In the first episode of Netflix's Behind the Scenes podcast, set decorator jess royal details she did not make the cut. In fact, the candle shop came out so period-appropriate that there was even talk of writing it into the show, even though these plans never materialized. Apparently, transforming the mall itself was a scrapbook the production team found while scouting the location, which contained images of what the mall looked like in the '80s.

Local Atlanta newspaper AJC Netflix reports that he is currently being dismissed. Unfortunately, the mall could really use the customization. Most of the mall's units are now empty, with only a handful of shops remaining.

With the retro mall now probably disappearing forever, we can at least take a look at it.
