Pic of the Day: A Wretched Hive of Scum and Villainy

Hard to believe the 35th Anniversary of the original Star Wars is coming up in a few weeks (May 25). I might unbend a bit from my self-imposed Luca$ boycott to watch it.

Here's a Google Earth capture of the little building in Ajim, Tunisia used for exterior shots of the Mos Eisley Cantina.

The place hasn't been touched since 1976; I read somewhere that it's being used to store bicycles.

Here are some fan sites with shots of the building with and without the set dressing and production blueprints of the set.
