'Bill and Ted' Wish Metrocenter Mall Farewell Amid Closing After 47 Years


Metrocenter mall closed on June 30th after being in business for 47 years in the Valley.

Aside from being a staple of the Phoenix area... the mall was also a shooting location for the 1989 movie, Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure. While production took place at several locations around the Valley, the mall is somewhat famous for being a filming location for the cult classic.

On Friday, June 24, the "Bill and Ted 3" Twitter account paid a short tribute to the mall in a tweet.

Their tweet reads:

Metrocenter Mall in Phoenix, Arizona; where the mall scenes in Excellent Adventure were filmed, will be closing its doors on June 30th, after 47 years in business. It will be most missed.

See their tweet below and the trailer for the third installment.
