James Locke Jeweler in Super 8

Date: February / 09 / 2011 + Comments: 3

The store James Locke Jeweler is part of the Super 8 trailer (J.J. Abrams):

Super 8 James Locke jeweler

The sign says: Locke Jeweler

Is James a relative of John Locke?, the character from the tv series Lost.

Heres is another scene with the James Locke Jeweler sign:

There is also a video camera store that says: OLSEN CAMERA HIGH FIDELITY
Maybe that is a Super 8 camera.

In the front side of the road there is a Rent-a-car business: LAYMAN’S R/C CARS, in the trailer some of its cars suddenly start working by themselves or by strange mental force.
Above Layman’s sign there is a big orange sign that says: WRO… is it ¿WRONG? ¿Does J.J. Abrams want to tell us that we are with the wrong theories?

James Locke Jewelers has a web page

    Hi, I just wanted to let you know that James Locke Jewelers is a real store and has been in business since 1955. My great uncle is James. He is my grand-fathers brother. James (Jim) was born and raised in East Liverpool, Ohio. He has 2 sons, James and Keith. He passed away in 2007, leaving behind his wife Margaret who lives just a few block down from the store. I will however note that the James Locke from Lost has nothing to do and is of no relation to my family. Hope this helps!!

    S. Locke:

    Thank you very much for your explanation (y)

    This clears every speculation and congrats for having a family business as a part of this movie.

    Just saw Super 8 and was delighted to see a bit of the downtown I grew up in highlighted…I had to immediately find out if I had been mistaken in assuming that the store was an individual legacy or rather part of a chain. I’m thrilled to find my childhood memories in tact. Great production design! Clearly a designer who took the best of many small communities in Ohio to craft a fictional town where mayhem could ensue.
    Hope it brings some business and a smile….
    Best, Inda
