Joliet wants to put you behind bars

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Officials are trying to get permission from the state to run tours at the old Joliet Correctional Center.

That's the prison where "Blues Brothers" and the FOX show "Prison Break" were filmed. It's a historic facility and was built in the 1800s.

The Joliet-area Historical Museum wants to have former prison guards lead the tours.

The Department of Corrections closed the facility more than a decade ago.
