For now, Block E is a frozen hole in the ground; downtown stores open and close, but this site remains remarkably resistant to change. As the late showing of Payback lets out across the street at the Skyway, a mostly teenage audience wanders out onto Hennepin Avenue, laughing and shivering in the bitter February night. A patrol car trolls by, slowing slightly as it passes. Perhaps these kids will eventually be able to catch the latest flicks in the mall across the street. They're going to have a long wait.
