Jumanji Film Locations

Image
While I was in New Hampshire last week, I stopped in Keene to take some Jumanji comparison shots.

Let's start at the beginning of the film.

In the opening scene Alan Parrish rides his bike past a statue of his ancestor, Angus Parrish.  I had been to Keene once before and knew there was a statue in this square, so I assumed they just attached a fake plaque to it, I was wrong.

They  built the prop statue on top of this rock fountain.  Why not just use the existing one?

Here's another statue screen shot.

It almost looks like they tried to brush out the actual statue in the opening shot from the film. .

This Parrish shoes ad can be seen briefly in the film and appears in the back ground of the second statue picture I posted.  Here it is today.
Moving onto the stampede scenes.

Turns out Frank's Barber Shop is still there too.


So is this old coke mural


Run Kirsten!


Stampede!


In this shot you can see the statue that's actually in the town square.

There is a church back there…
