East Corinth was the filming site for the cult classic film “Beetlejuice.” Kendall Gendron and her husband Travis would love to tell — and show — you all about it. The couple recently purchased the iconic schoolhouse in East Corinth that was used in the 1988 movie, “Beetlejuice.” The small Vermont town was used to shoot the fan-favorite film and still frequently receives movie-loving tourists as a result. Gendron’s purchase is to help preserve the historic building, which is both a part of the town’s and the film’s history. “The plan is to renovate the building and bring it back to life,” she said. The schoolhouse is the only remaining hot spot left from the movie. “The local Masons took ownership of the school house in the ’80s and renamed the building Minerva Lodge,” Gendron said. They sold it to us with the stipulations that we purchase it under a nonprofit that’s goal is to benefit Corinth, agree to restore the building and allow them use of the back addition of the building as their lodge. Our little town gets lots of foot traffic from Beetlejuice enthusiasts.
