This very new-looking booth, like much like the DS-21 minus the television screens, is located in a common area in the main level of the mall, next to some food and gift carts at the base of the escalators. After popping my head in only to find out the booth was out of order, I stepped back to take a photograph of the booth itself. A security guard approached and asked me what I was doing. I explained myself, but I was informed that I couldn't take photographs of mall property. If I were taking pictures of family members, that was ok, but taking a photograph of the photobooth was "against the mall." I was told that I could be arrested if I took a photograph of the booth, at which point I decided it wasn't worth the argument. Any intrepid photobooth fans out there car to give it a shot? (June 18, 2005).

UPDATE: I stopped by the booth again and tried to be a little less obvious. The security guard wasn't hovering in the area this time around, so I was able to snap a photo, and the booth was in working order, as well. They've installed the curtains so that the side facing the wall gets a (useless) curtain and the back of the booth gets two, leaving the open side open. I think it's the first photobooth I've been in that has no way of closing out the outside world. Maybe it's a mistake, or maybe it's another way of maintaining their rigid security. The photos come out nicely bathed in blue, as well. (September 24, 2005)

UPDATE January 27, 2008, Josh informs us that as of January, 2008, this booth is no longer at this location.
