Store/mall policy does not have anything to do with the law, period.  They
have no right to take your film, much less your camera, though they can ask
you to leave.  If you refuse, they can not physically touch you, they must
call the Police to have you removed, unless you are causing or I believe
threatening to cause someone else (possibly some thing too) physical harm.
