Footloose (1984)

The 1984 film “Footloose,” starring Kevin Bacon, was filmed in Utah. The church where Shaw Moore, played by John Lithgow, is reverend can be found in the town of American Fork, about 40 minutes south of Salt Lake City. The reverend’s home was formerly located across the street, but has since been demolished, with a shopping plaza now in its place.

One of the central locations of the film is the mill where Ren, played by Kevin Bacon, works. It can be found in the town of Lehi. While the building itself hasn’t changed much since filming took place, the surrounding area has changed significantly, with roads and businesses now surrounding it.
