Beetlejuice was filmed in East Corinth, Vermont

Most people have heard of Beetlejuice. But, just in case you haven't, it's a popular cult classic starring Michael Keaton, Wynona Ryder, and Geena Davis.

While the movie actually says it takes place in Connecticut, the exterior shots of the home were actually taken in East Corinth, Vermont.

That big old house on the hill wasn't a real house. It was a facade built solely for the film. After the film was completed, it was torn down. But, the filming did take place in Vermont.

The Four Seasons was filmed in Stowe, Vermont

The Four Seasons starred Alan Alda and Carol Burnett. This movie was a hit in 1981 when the winter season portion was filmed in the Stowehof Inn in Stowe.

This film received many award nominations including Best Picture-Comedy Golden Globe and Best Actress-Comedy Golden Globe. It's probably one of the more famous movies shot here in Vermont.

You can still visit the Stowehof Inn today and see the moose head that was used in the film as well as pictures of the cast during the filming. Visit Stowhof Inn on Edson Hill Rd in Stowe, Vermont.

Funny Farm was filmed in Townshend, Vermont

Another wildly popular movie, Funny Fam starred Chevy Chase and Madolyn Smith. This comedy was filmed almost entirely in Townshend.

The house used in filming this movie is a basic Cape-style home that's located on a scenic pond in Graton, Vermont. The house is still there today at the end of a road just outside the village.

The home is a private residence so don't expect to be able to walk through it. During the filming of the movie, all of the owner's possessions were moved out of the house and stored elsewhere. This way the movie could use the props it wanted to.

The gazebo used in the movie was built by the filmmakers. But, the owners liked it so much that they decided to keep it up after the film was done. Find it today in Townshend Vermont.
