Storyline

A small town in upstate Pennsylvania is overcome by a massive underground mine fire which began in May of 1962. After many failed attempts by the government to put out the fire, it grew larger and moved beneath most of the town. By 1980, hundreds of residents had to be relocated and eminent domain was eventually enforced, forcing the remaining residents out of their homes. A group of residents filed a lawsuit and fought the state of Pennsylvania for the right to stay in their homes. By 2013, the case was settled and granted those remaining residents life estates. Written by Joe Sapienza II

Trivia

In 2015, the original soundtrack of the film included additions of music from John Lennon, Van Morrison, Sid Vicious, Rod Stewart, and Perry Como for a Christmas segment on Centralia, however later on those songs were all axed due to budget constraints. The Centralia Christmas segment was in the original edit with an interview of former resident Tom Hynoski that was cut due to time. See more »
