Movies Insider visit the real prison that’s used in Hollywood movies. Prison scenes are a common sight in modern flicks, but how do they film them?


In this video, we get to look inside the Arthur Kill Correctional Facility in Staten Island, in the USA. It’s not been in use as a functioning prison for a number of years and was bought by a production company a few years ago to be turned into a movie set.

It’s been used in a number of films and TV shows over the years. Fans of Orange Is The New Black and Daredevil might recognise some of the rooms in the prison, as it was used in both of those shows. It’s amazing to see all the different filming locations and learn more about how prisons are used for the small screen. The video points out how much more authentic the actors performances must be, as they spend most of their day in a real life prison!
