"The Blues Brothers" movie will be shown at the Old Joliet Prison in an event that will include prison tours, concessions and more Aug. 21-22.
The Joliet Area Historical Museum had been planning a "Blues Brothers" showing at the prison to mark the 40th anniversary of the film's release since early this year.
The opening scene of the movie was filmed at the Joliet Correctional Center on Collins Street, which the museum renamed the Old Joliet Prison, opening up the site for tours and events.
The scope of the "Blues Brothers" event has changed amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
But it will feature elements connected to the movie, including "Blues Brothers" visuals and highlights on the prison grounds, according to an event announcement from the museum.
The movie will be shown a 45-foot screen inside the prison.
Tickets are $35, and $20 for children 13 and younger.
"Pre-registration is required and we will have timed entry to adhere to social distancing protocols," the museum said in its announcement.
"All guests will be assigned to a numbered circle on the lawn which will be distanced 15 feet between others for optimal social distancing," the museum said. "Masks must be worn at all times, except in designated circles to watch the movie."
Food and beverage concessions will be done with a "touch-less transaction process," according to the announcement.
The event will include a raffle, photo opportunities and merchandise sales.
The first 100 guests will receive a "Blues Brothers" hat and glasses.
