Everyone who has watched Stranger Things episodes or has seen the trailer must be curious to know where on earth the show’s production crew made a science fiction series that has all the realistic 80s vibes. So let’s dive deep to know about it.
MAJOR LOCATIONS USED TO FILM STRANGER THINGS
Stranger Things In ATLANTA, GEORGIA
The filming of Stranger things was majorly done in Atlanta and it covers most of the scenes depicted in the show. The location frames major stops like Hawkins town, house of the Wheelers, Hendersons, and Sinclairs. The Hawkins Middle School set is also present which has one of the most dramatic scenes of Stranger things.
This middle school is where Mike, Dustin, Lucas, and Max were students, dressed up as Ghostbusters for Halloween and it is home to the football team ‘Cubs’ and ‘Tigers’. The Atlanta location also includes scenes like the hangout of Nancy, Jonathan, and Steve, the Hawkins community pool, the arcade, and the well-known Starcourt Mall which was the main location scene in Season 3 where Steve used to work for the Scoops Ahoy, an icecream parlor in the food court of Starcourt Mall.
Stranger Things In ROME, GEORGIA
The spine-chilling Season 4 Creel House is a real existing historic place called Claremont House in Rome city of Georgia. Here, many terrifying scenes were filmed such as Victor Creel narrating his horrifying past to Nancy and Robin, Henry Creel’s past, his exceptional psychokinetic abilities and hate for human civilization, Henry being Venca who uses Creel’s house as his base to perform his evil deeds of tormenting others with his curse powers and many such horror scenes.
Due to the Creel House set, Stranger things Season 4 has brought in realistic scaring and thrilling sequences, making the viewers want for more.
Stranger Things ALBUQUERQUE, NEW MEXICO
Now could we forget the Season 4 Rink-O-Mania scene where Mike, Eleven, and Will go roller skating where Mike and Will argue. The location also has the segment where Eleven is bullied by Angela and her friends resulting in Eleven getting back at Angela by smacking the roller skates right in her face. This was one of the best revenge scenes and I would say she deserved it.
Stranger Things In VILNIUS, LITHUANIA
Most of the Stranger Things fandom must be relieved by now that Jim Hopper has survived the explosion of the Russian Gate underneath Starcourt Mall after watching the cliffhanger from the previous Season 3 finale. Season 4 of Stranger Things reveals that Hopper is tortured and sent to a snowy Russian prison, as the Russians believe him to be an American spy. To feature the harsh winter climate, the series was filmed in Vilnius, Lithuania at the deserted Lukiškes prison.
For me, the Creel House location was one of the best to film the sci-fi Stranger Things series. Also, Stranger Things Season 5 is going to release soon. So, get ready to experience another set of mysterious and horror-filled seasons of Stranger Things. Until then, bye!
