If you’ve read Stephen King’s IT, then you know just how important of a location the Neibolt house is. It’s where several scenes in the story take place, and it acts as a pivotal location.
Now, people in Los Angeles (and those willing to travel) can experience the house for themselves as it’s become a haunted house experience called The IT Experience: Neibolt House, located at Hollywood Blvd. and Vine Street.
Here’s the official description: The house will be open to the public daily August 14th through September 10th from 1pm to 11pm. Admission is free. Those who are 18 and over are welcome (at their own risk) to step inside the two-story replica of “where IT lives.” Guests will be guided by “Georgie” through the 5,000-square-foot house and will venture room by room through immersive film-inspired scenes complete with authentic set props. “Losers’ Club” groups of 7 will journey through a 20-minute experience encountering pneumatic surprises, live actors, animatronic beings, and state-of-the-art lighting, audio, and video.
If you want to reserve tickets for your own experience, you can do so right here.
Stephen King’s IT has been rated R for “violence/horror, bloody images, and for language.”
Jaeden Lieberher, Finn Wolfhard, Nicholas Hamilton, Jack Dylan Grazer, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs, Jeremy Ray Taylor, and Sophia Lillis star with Bill Skarsgard, who portrays Pennywise. In addition, creature performer Javier Botet has signed on as The Leper, and Owen Teague plays Patrick Hocksetter, part of a group of bullies who torment The Losers’ Club.
IT hits theaters on September 8th. Andrés Muschietti directs.
The behind-the-scenes creative team includes director of photography Chung-Hoon Chung (Me and Earl and the Dying Girl), production designer Claude Paré (Rise of the Planet of the Apes), editor Jason Ballantine (The Great Gatsby), and costume designer Janie Bryant (“Mad Men”).
When children begin to disappear in the town of Derry, Maine, a group of young kids are faced with their biggest fears when they square off against an evil clown named Pennywise, whose history of murder and violence dates back for centuries.
