The movie was mostly filmed here in Ohio is celebrating its 25th anniversary.

Some of the cast and crew members, including director Frank Darabont and Bob Gunton, who played Warden Norton, returned recently to where it all began — the closed Ohio State Reformatory in Mansfield, which was used for a majority of the movie’s setting. It is now a tourist attraction for fans of the film.

Users of the Internet Movie Database (IMDB) have ranked the film the best film of all time (9.3 out of 10), ahead of “The Godfather,” “The Dark Knight,” and “The Godfather II.”

Tours of the prison are available daily from April 1 – Sept. 30, and Thursdays through Sundays from Oct. 1 – March 31.
