Best Mural Savers

Gallery Black Lagoon

When the Movie Store closed earlier this year, there was double sadness. First, because another mom-and-pop video store had gone, but second, because this could have spelled doom for an iconic mural. A mash-up of every sci-fi classic film, from Flash Gordon to Gojira, the fear was that it would fall prey to itinerant taggers or just a can of whitewash. Yet who could be better guardians of the intergalactic glory than an art gallery named after a vintage 3-D monster flick?
