Your Ideas "Perhaps turn the facilities into a major refrigerated food warehouse!  Given the thickness of the walls and ceiling, one could perhaps use as is (or maybe add glued on styrofoam panels for added insulation) to each of the cells (leaving each open...of course.  An entire area can be refrigerated or - with added equipment - brought down to freezing temps." - Ken Arnold 

"Films studios are always looking for unique properties to refer to other filmmakers to use as film sets. Such TV shows as The Walking Dead had to actually build whole sets that looked like a prison for a whole season.  The site could be rented by the day week month year to film studios and filmmakers." - Christos
