Does this storefront look familiar?

Considered a slasher film from 1997, A scene from “I Know What You Did Last Summer” was filmed crossing across the courthouse square then inside the department store. The store features prominently in the scary chase scene, playing its part as the "Shivers" department store. Fans of the film often visit and are treated to a tour of the place where Sarah Michelle Geller runs for her life.

Shot on location in the spring of 1997, I Know What You Did Last Summer was released theatrically on October 17, 1997. The film is based around four friends who are stalked by a hook-wielding killer one year after covering up a car accident in which they killed a man. The film starred Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillippe, and Freddie Prinze Jr.

Harrell’s Department Store was also transformed during the filming of 2006 “Idlewild” an American musical film written and directed by Bryan Barber. It was a story based on a juke joint in the fictional Depression-era town of Idlewild, Georgia in 1935.
