It was a special weekend in Hope, British Columbia. The small town celebrated the 35th anniversary of the filming of the Sylvester Stallone film, Rambo: First Blood.

Rambo First Blood Movie

 

Released in 1982, Rambo: First Blood was filmed in our very own backyard. The movie is about John Rambo, a war veteran who takes on the abusive police force in the town of “Hope, Washington” or as we know it, Hope, British Columbia.

To celebrate the 35th anniversary of the film, the municipality of Hope held two special screenings at the local movie theatre, offered tours of where the film was set and even brought out some awesome props for the occasion!

Take a look:
