Weird Science Locations
Locations Manager(s): Billy Higgins
Under their watchful eye, the following special places were used for filming "Weird Science":
The boys live in Highland Park, IL. The mall scene in Weird Science took place at Northbrook Court in Northbrook, IL. It has since been heavily modified.
The first and last scenes of the movie were filmed in the small gymnasium at Bell High School in Bell, CA. [Thanks to Stephen Danko]
The exterior high school used was New Trier Township High School in Winnetka, IL.
The car chase scene at the end of the movie takes place on St. John's Ave. in Highland Park, IL. When they turn the corner, they are on Central Ave. in Highland Park. [Thanks to Alschra]
The house from this movie was also used in "Donnie Darko" and "Not another teen movie". It is located at 4252 Country club drive Long Beach, California. [Thanks to Terri B]

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.
