Tommy Boy (1995) Movie Filming Locations

The cult classic “Tommy Boy” starring Chris Farley & David Spade was filmed on location in Toronto and Ontario, Canada with additional scenes done in the United States. For example, have you ever wondered where the University is that Tommy goes to at the beginning of the movie?

The college used in the “Tommy Boy” movie that’s supposed to be Marquette University in Wisconsin, was actually The University College and the University of Toronto in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It can be found in the background of the scenes below where Tommy (Chris Farley) realizes he is indeed late for class.

The Tommy Boy trailer used for the movie is what originally convinced me to see it. Chris Farley and David Spade? That’s the perfect combination for a movie like this. No wonder the movie was so great.

Welcome to Sandusky (Sign)

In the movie, you will notice the college is supposed to be located in a town called Sandusky, Ohio, which is a real city in Ohio. However, a majority of the filming was done in Canada instead.

The ‘Welcome’ sign for Sandusky, Ohio is actually located in Port Hope, Ontario. The sign is just south of the Main Street in front of Port Hope City Hall and across from the bandshell. (Thanks Dave)!

Where is the gas station seen in the film?

The classic scene where Tommy distroys the car was filmed on Main St in Schomberg, Ontario. It’s a small Audi dealer now. Look closely, you can see the buildings are the same just painted a new color.

map it! 306 Main St Schomberg, Ontario

Thank you Mr E for the tip!

The classic scene when the guys discover they are driving with a wild deer inside the Plymouth GTX, was filmed in Newmarket, Ontario, Canada. The exact location unknown Got a Tip?

Moments before the boys discover the deer, they pass a Minneapolis 285 Miles sign on the highway. This location unknown but we can assume it’s not in Minnesota – Got a Tip?

Chris Farley sings the maniac song while being hosed down by Rob Lowe at a gas station. The gas station was real and was located in Newmarket, Ontario..main street and Davis drive (station is now empty lot).
