Since It first aired, there has been a lot of speculation about the sewer building pump house. Fans wanted to know the location of the real building, and rumor was that it was a built set that was immediately torn down after filming. The real building is the old Buntzen Lake Hydro Plant in Canada, which looked vaguely different in 1990, but after it shut down in the early 2000s, it now retains a more faded look. People can go up to it, but are prohibited from going inside without authorization. See more »

Although released on VHS and Laserdisc in the original two-part miniseries format, the DVD and Blu-ray releases from Warner Bros. are an edited Home Video Version which removes the end of Part 1 and the beginning of Part 2 in order to turn it into one long film. Here is what has been removed at timestamp 1:34:00 (the chapter 28 mark on the Blu-ray):
THE END OF PART 1: Stan's wife finds that he has slit his wrist in the bathtub and starts to scream, the scream is cut off abruptly and therefore also the final showing of "IT" written in the blood on the bathroom wall, accompanied by Pennywise laughing and "to be continued" along with the end credits.
THE BEGINNING OF PART 2: Starts with Bill arriving at the Derry cemetery. This completely cuts out his arrival at the hotel, the conversation with the woman at the desk, a short scene in his hotel room, the full ride in a taxi to the cemetery along with the opening credits.
