The Truman Show – Florida


In 1998 a location was needed for the movie “The Truman Show” with Jim Carrey and Ed Harris. In the movie, the town is calles “Seahaven”, the location used is in Florida and is called “Seaside”.

The house that was used for Truman is clearly labeled these days.

Throughout the movie, the spike of Coleman Pavilion can be seen. It is now a public beach access.

In Ruskin Place, you can find the Rubeo Architects sign. This is not a real buisiness, but a sign that was left by the film crew.

The Post Office has been moved, 10 feet further south. Although the structure is still the same as it was back then.
