Alcatraz 3: New Industries Building 2

POST #    1886

The New Industries Building on Alcatraz, which I mentioned was my favorite building, was built on the island in the 1940s. One reason they built the new building is because the Modern Industries Building (5th picture here) was difficult to monitor as guards in the watchtower could not see the back of the building.

While the Modern Industries has a more notorious history - escape attempts and a murder - the New Industries Building has played a major role in the 1996 film, The Rock. To see the exact scene, check out the script on IMSDB and search for "New Industries."
