The Laughlin HOtel where my mother used to work for Mr. Flores. It is now a Ball Park. I dont know why the city demolished the Science Museum and City Hall. Both were new buildings!

The hotel in No Country for Old Men was the Laughlin, too. I bet there's a reason McCarthy did that.

During the filming of this movie, The Getaway, my family and I lived at 329 W Missouri ( apartments with the palms and balconies). I was old enough to remember that a casting crew member asked my mom if she would remain seated (first balcony on the left facing the street) on a metal chair my mom had, smoking a cigarette and drinking her coffee. He told her that she added character to the scene where the getaway car flew by....my dad and I laughed about that because my mom shared that story with friends and family for many years, still today she brings that up with my kids. The crew member added that he particularly liked her white hair. Great memories, great movie!
