AKRON, Ohio – Photojournalist Seph Lawless captured eerie footage of an abandoned mall using a drone.

The short film, called “The Last of Us,” shows what is left of the Rolling Acres Mall in Akron.

According to WJW, the Rolling Acres Mall used to be home to over 140 stores, a movie theater and food court.

The mall, built in 1975, closed all but two stores in 2008. It completely closed in 2013.

In the video, Lawless says the city has started to demolish the mall.
