Where Was It Filmed?  2017 Movie Shooting Locations

Andy Muschietti of ‘Mama’ fame upped the ante with the 2017 horror adventure film ‘It’. Painted with a coming-of-age setting and based on Stephen King’s 1986 novel of the same name, the film contains a bag full of spooky surprises as it delves into Derry County’s past. Bill makes a paper boat for Georgie in the rainy season, but Georgie disappears after a hideous encounter with Pennywise the Dancing Clown.

With the number of missing children skyrocketing, seven new friends investigate the mystery. The search for the truth leads them to mysterious tunnels.
