A bit of old Finland in Tucson

Went to a movie today at a huge 20 screen movie emporium at a large mall called Park Place in Tucson.  You buy your tickets on the ground floor and then take a large set of stairs or an escalator up a good two or three stories to the lobby and screens proper.

 
A closer look at the giant escalator reveals its manufacturer.


  
 
 
So what you say! Well Kone is a Finnish company with its main offices in Helsinki and my son works for them and lives in Helsinki. So all the way in Tucson this winter I can get a little reminder of  what he is doing.   Pretty cool.
