|HAMILTON HIGH TODAY|
|I've got the word out to a few people who have stated that they have been to the Don Mills Collegiate Institute in Toronto and took pictures. For now, these are all I have. Thanks to fan Dave Grubka for some of the pictures inside the school.|
|In June of 2009 Don Mills hosted a 50th anniversary reunion and these photos show the auditorium/cafeteria. It looks a lot different without the dance floor and "DISCO MADNESS" signs! I wonder if anyone had any stories of the filming?|
|These aren't the same stairs, but will do for now...|
|The photo below was snagged off of a video tour of the school.|
| Hamilton High is supposed to be located in Ohio, and the school overlooks what I assume is Lake Erie. Since the movie was shot in Toronto, Lake Ontario stood in for Erie.
The park Nick and Kim walk through is actually the "Scarborough Bluffs Park." Aside from modern day fencing, I don't think this are has changed all that much.
The exact area where "Slick" drove off and crashed is anyones guess, since the bluffs are known for their high rate of erosion...
|Could that actually be the remains of the van? Photographed recently at the bottom of the bluffs!|
|"THE ABANDONED BUILDING"|
|The creepy building shown at the start of the film was the "Langstaff Jail Farm." It was located in the town of Richmond Hill north of Toronto. It was what is now considered a "minimum security" prison. The building was called "Cottage No. 1" and was mainly a dormitory. It was torn down in the early 1990s.|
