Hey guys, I have not seen one of these in ages.... is it because I simply am not looking hard enough? or am being very unobservant in my daily life?

I would love to gather a list of locations where these photo booths still exist, in malls, cities, etcetera.... this might be a good thread for people to refer back to in the future if we can get a good list going!

Thanks for any help Smiley

there used to be one in lougheed mall on the upper level between walmart and the hoisery place. and there used to be one in richmond centre over in the quieter part of the mall by the bay.

i have no clue if they're still there though, i haven't been to either mall in years.

There was one at the Amtrak/Greyhound station near Main Street Skytrain Station. Alas I was last there about 2 years ago.

I don't know if you meant this to only be about British Columbia, but there's a cool Black and White one in Frizzy's Bar on Allen St. in Buffalo, NY.  People get plastered and post their drunken pictures up on the walls of the bar in this giant hysterical collage.  If you're visiting friends or family in Ontario, Buffalo is just a short trip over the bridge from Niagara Falls/Fort Erie.

I have a feeling I saw one in Brentwood mall like two weeks ago. Near the Sears, in a hallway near a pet store. I don't think there is one in Lougheed mall, but it may be around the corner near the Bay on the bottom floor if there is still one there. I LOVE taking pictures in these kinds of booths, the last time I did it was on my friends birthday. Good times, does anyone remember those sticker picture machines?? I remember I was soooo excited to find a Harry Potter one when I was on vacation! Well I hope there are other picture booths out there, cause now I really want to go take some pictures!

Are you talking about the kind of photo booths like in Amelie? If you are then......I don't know if you want to drive out to Chilliwack but there is one in cottonwood mall.

I found another one by accident yesterday! If you go on the upper level of Metrotown on the way to The Bay and the food court, on the right there is a little hallway that leads to parking and there is a booth right there. It's hard to explain exactly how to get there, but it's there so go and find it!!

There's at least one still in Richmond Centre: I saw one there today, but it's in the middle of the hallway between Payless ShoeSource and Athlete's World, which is at the opposite (Sears) end of the mall. No idea if there's one still at the Bay end.

There's one outside Sears on the top floor of Metrotown. Although it was out of order when I was there a week or so ago.

I had a crazy dream the other day I was in an old fashioned photo booth and when my pictures came out they were of British tourists (no clue how I knew that) and not me!!  Huh
