'Nebraska' Part One: The Billings and Laurel Connection

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

It's nominated for six Academy Awards including best picture, director, actor, and supporting actress.

Nebraska, directed by Alexander Payne, is a movie about an aging and often drunk father, who makes his way from Montana to Nebraska because he mistakenly thinks he's won the lottery.

It's a movie near and dear to Billings, because it was partially shot in the Magic City at the end of 2012.

Thanks to a huge team effort by locals, Billings is clearly represented in Nebraska.

With the help of Location Scout Anne Gauer, KULR-8's Stella Daskalakis and Chief Photographer Levi Adams had the honor of going to the exact spots where some of the movie's scenes were shot.

The Montana Film Office estimates Nebraska meant a total economic impact of over $370,000 to our area.

Tuesday, we take you inside the Laurel home know known as Woody and Kate's home in the movie.
