Our town, Weirton, WV was the location where the "Super Eight" movie was filmed. During it's premiere in the local movie theater, the city held some kind of celebration. They put up tents and had some activities. We did not attend so we did not really know exactly what kind of activities they did.
So if anyone wants to know where Super Eight was filmed, it is in our town, Weirton. In the movie, the place is called Lilian Ohio but it's actually shot here in W, WV.
