Berry College in Rome, GA, my undergrad alma mater. The filming was done in late summer of 1988. I have no idea why this fact has completely disappeared; it isn't in the Wikipedia article about Berry, either. They hadn't cast Robin Williams yet when they started filming, and filmed all the scenes that he wasn't in. Then it ground to a halt when they were done and they still hadn't cast him. They claimed to have reshot the whole thing after he was cast, but we didn't buy it. Some of the scenes were clearly from the other school, but others were instantly recognizable. [Thanks to Lynda]

Can you help? Do you know any of the Delaware (or any other) filming locations used for Dead Poets Society? Please Update Us

LX is our radical new locations feature that we've been beavering away on.. For years!

Each location will have it's own page with then/now pictures, maps, StreetView, discovery story and the most detailed explanations on how the location was used. Most importantly, the locations will have a status that shows whether they are verified correct and by whom. We are working with the actual locations managers or other crew where possible. The whole thing will be very interactive and you will, of course, be able to update everything.
