Even if you have never been to Evansville before, I bet you know what it looks like.
This town has appeared in dozens of movies and TV shows over the years.
Remember that old movie A League of Their Own with Tom Hanks? Much of that was shot right here in Evansville, in Bosse Field. Everyone has seen the TV show Roseanne at some point, but did you know that all the exterior shots in the series were filmed in Evansville? One of the show producers is from Evansville and thought it represented the right aesthetic for the show. Most famously, Evansville served as a primary shooting location for the original classic Back to the Future. The first time I came to town I was hit by a major sense of deja vu even though I had never been to Evanslville before. I was there for an interview with a major local contractor who was expanding into doing new HVAC installations and needed some certified techs for his work crew. Evansville is not a small town, but recent expansion in the business district has caused a rise in the demand for HVAC specialists. Mostly I would be working in commercial spaces, both office buildings and warehouses, to install new heating and cooling systems. In addition to my new HVAC job I am considering starting a blog, where I post pics of myself in front of various Evansville landmarks that have appeared on TV before. I am sure that I will love my new home in Evansville, and I look forward to meeting all of you.
