‘The Thing’ Fans Planning 40th Anniversary Group Trip to Filming Location!



Don’t worry, you have 5 years to plan and save up.

We only just celebrated the 35th anniversary of John Carpenter’s The Thing (released June 25th, 1982), but something pretty epic is already being put together for the 40th anniversary and we want to make sure you have enough time to prepare. After all, time flies and it’ll be here before ya know it!

June 25th, 2022 will be the 40th anniversary of The Thing, and the man behind fan site Outpost 31 is planning a group trip to Stewart, British Columbia that promises to be the coolest thing ever for fans of Carpenter’s practical effects masterpiece. The trip is scheduled for June 23rd – 26th, 2022.

Site owner Todd Cameron digs into the details…

We are organizing a group trip to Stewart, British Columbia in Canada to visit the filming location and celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the film in June 2022! We’ll spend a few days in the border towns of Stewart and Hyder exploring the site on which can still be found the scattered remains of the Outpost #31 camp set and wreckage of the Norwegian helicopter. Some fun ideas we have planned are a live video tour of the site, spending a night (or two) camping out at Outpost #31 complete with bonfire, and a viewing of the movie literally ‘on location’ synched live with fans around the world!

EVERYONE is welcome to join the adventure, and you’ll find all the details you need over on Outpost 31. Needless to say, this is once-in-a-lifetime awesomeness!
