Deep Throat, the secret source who started the Watergate scandal in the film All the Presidents Men (1976) was obviously a lover of dark, underground car parks. Because that is where he leaked is information to The Washington Post and eventually caused the downfall of President Nixon. The Alexandrium in Rotterdam (the Oosterflank district) had not yet been built, otherwise the former FBI bigwig would certainly have honoured the shopping mall, reminiscent of America and opening (1984) with its anonymous mega car park building with a visit. Checked fact: In the Hong Kong action film Who am I ? (1998) there’s a scene in which Jackie Chan tries to escape from a gang of criminals on the spiral access ramp to the Alexandrium III car park.
