Episode 251 — Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo in How Did This Get Made? Posted January 8, 2021 "I disagree. As a disabled person I would never be able to get into the building. I struggle with stairs. I have friends with walkers and they couldn't use those steps either. How are we supposed to get inside? This building is not accessible. While the movie takes place before the Americans With Disabilities Act passed" You shot a hole in your argument right there. At the time the film was made (and is set), it's before that Act, so this building could get built without having any ramps. Besides, the evil guy is not talking about disabled access to the building - he's saying the building is unsafe for *everyone*. So even if you accept that he's basing this argument on lack of ramps, that wouldn't fly. "Also given the age of the building I'm going to guess that it was made with asbestos and painted with lead paint. Both things you have to be careful about when remodeling." Again, at the time this film was mde/set, asbestos or lead paint were not things that building inspectors were demolishing buildings for. "Given that the building had sat neglected for years what about water damage or termites?" How do you know it's been neglected for years? Based on what we see in the movie, it's been in use by the community for quite awhile. Nothing is said in the film that this building has only been in use as a community center for a short period of time - in fact, based on what we see, it appears that it's been used for this purpose for years.
