Proud to an extent. I think that most of the town's people didn't want the movie filmed there. But I think they have realized that it can bring money to Pt. Pleasant. I've been there three times. It is a nice little town. But like most little towns, they fall out of sync with the rest of the world.
Let me rephrase that. I think it was 50/50 with people wanting it filmed there. They ended up filming it in Kittanning, Pennsylvania. I think due to the tax breaks. The also filmed the My Bloody Valentine remake in the same town.
