The Ohio State Reformatory was used as the fictional Shawshank Prison in New England in the movie. Make sure to take the Hollywood Tour at the Reformatory.  The warden's office, Brooks' hotel room, the parole board room and even the replica carving on the ceiling that reads, "Brooks was here. So was Red" are on display. The hole that Andy dug through his cell wall to escape is also on display as well as the tunnel he crawled through. Chocolate syrup, saw dust and water were in the tunnel to mimic an actual sewer pipe.  Look for replica standups of Red, Andy, Warden Norton, Heywood and Brooks inside the Reformatory for a photo opportunity!
