Legre Mente Plant, Marseilles
Founded in 1784, the Legre Mente Plant in Marseilles, France, closed its doors in 2009 and has since been left to ruin. Set against Massif des Calanques, the location offers a variety of run down industrial interiors and exteriors including rusted machinery, chimney stacks, graffitied walls, rusting metal tanks, crumbling catwalks, and more. Be it fight scenes in a bad-guys hideout, or a music video dance sequence, Legre Mente Plant is an ideal space to execute your creative vision.
Legre Mente is privately owned so permitting is on a case by case basis and there is no set time requirement. The location has previously been featured in a French TV series about old factories as well as commercial stills shoots. May through to November is the best time to shoot for weather and long daylight hours.
