Shopping Morumbi, or Morumbi Shopping, is a shopping centre located in the Itaim Bibi district of São Paulo, Brazil. Located near Morumbi Station in an area with a high concentration of businesses and hotels, the shopping centre is considered to be one of the most popular in the country by magazine Exame.[1]

Opened on 3 May 1982, it currently houses more than 480 stores, including the anchor stores C&A, Renner and Zara, as well as the only Apple Store in São Paulo. It contains a food hall and two recreational areas: Hotzone, a games arcade, and Play Space, a play area aimed at young children.

Cinema shooting

On 3 November 1999, a student of medicine, Mateus da Costa Meira, opened fire with a 9mm submachine gun in an evening screening of Fight Club at the cinema located in the shopping centre. Three people were killed and a further four were wounded. Mateus da Costa Meira was later sentenced to 120 years in prison.[2]

The screen in which the shooting occurred was permanently closed. The cinema closed its three remaining screens in 2012,[3] freeing up space for new stores.
