The dance at the end of the show was filmed in the National Gaurd building in Pontiac ILL.
The classroom scenes were all filmed in the old Highschool( which was torn down in '89 or '90) in Saunemin, IL -12 miles away form Pontaic. I was in 5th grade in Saunemin when they filmed it. I got to meet all the actors. [Thanks to Kindra Pedersen]
The scene where Tim is scuba diving is filmed at the Mill Street Dam.
The parade at the end of the movie is filmed in downtown Pontiac and is called the Threshermans Parade. It has been a tradition in Pontiac for over 75 years.
The scene where Tim is dreaming and dancing in front of grain bins is located on Old Route 66. [Thanks to Erica]
The race track was built where the Jaycees Baseball field is located east of Pontiac on Rt. 116.
There is a scene where after the dance Tim takes his date to go parking, this was filmed near the American Legion east of Pontiac.
My parents were in the scene where Patrick Swayze (slam) bulldozes the house. I was there that night with the sound/lights crew - it was so much fun meeting all the actors!!
