Hereditary (2018)

The 2018 Ari Aster film “Hereditary” was shot in Utah. The Graham house can be found in Park City, within a gated community known as The Colony. The home is not visible from the gated entrance. Ski lifts run just behind the home. Only the exterior of this property was used in the film, the interiors were filmed at Utah Film Studios, which we’ll cover later in this article.

LOCATION: 7 White Pine Canyon Rd, Park City, UT 84060

The tree house was built specifically for the film and dismantled after shooting was completed. We’ve included this wider shot of the surrounding area just to show that the tree house is no longer there.

The exterior of the school seen in the film is actually on the grounds of the Utah State Fairpark in Salt Lake City. It is seen several times in the film, all near the Grand Building near 300 N. In one scene, Peter, played by Alex Wolff, sees Joan, played by Ann Dowd, across the street through fencing.

Also on the same grounds of the Utah State Fairpark is the support group building where Annie, played by Toni Collette, first meets Joan. This building is known as the Pioneer Building.

The accident at the telephone pole was filmed on Richardson Flat Rd in Heber City, located very close to Utah Film Studios. The telephone pole itself was added by the production, but here is the area where it was filmed.

The funeral scenes were filmed at Larkin Sunset Gardens in Sandy, with the picturesque mountains in the distance. The cemetery is not large and it is relatively easy to find this location once you’re on the grounds.

LOCATION: Utah Film Studios, 4001 Kearns Blvd, Park City, UT 84060

The entire area is fenced off and there is a security gate to reach the area where the art supply exterior was filmed. When we visited, we were able to enter without issue, but your experience may differ from ours if you attempt to visit. Here is a wider view of the studios. The art supply exterior was toward the left side of the building from this view.
