Seeing those films referenced in the show always make me happy and nostalgic. Fun coincidence that Terminator is back in cinema these days with ”Dark Fate“. 🎬 • Location info: The building used as Hawkins Theater in the show is real-life Bradley’s Olde Tavern in Jackson, Georgia. 📍 • #StrangerThings #HawkinsTheater #Hawkins #ExploreGeorgia #Georgia #Terminator #Cinema A post shared by Andrea David 🎬 (@filmtourismus) on Nov 3, 2019 at 6:40am PST\n\nWebsite\nSo what are you waiting for?
