When they film a movie in a prison, how do they film it if all the inmates are there?

  • Best Answer

    Occasionally, they use an abandoned prison but usually it's just a set - built especially for the movie.

    Obviously they couldn't film a movie in a real, working prison!

  • A movie like "Escape From Alcatraz" was mostly filmed on location after it was no longer a prison. Of course they had to make repairs. Since the generator no longer worked, a cable from the mainland was brought over.

  • It's a set.  And now it's probably CGI to some degree.

  • Theyre usually either sets or decomissioned wings/prisons. Filming in an active prison would be extremely problematic
