It could be one of the most famous sports movies ever made.

"Hoosiers" is the story of a small town high school basketball team that wins the state championship, and fans come from far and wide to take a tour of the gym where parts of the movie were filmed.

Located just outside of Indianapolis, the Hoosiers gym will take you back to the fifties with its wooden bleachers and vintage scoreboard.

Visitors can reserve the court and shoot around where Jimmy Chitwood, Ollie, and the gang all practiced, all while accompanied by the soundtrack of the movie playing through speakers.

The gym hasn't been home to its own team since 1966, but it still hosts the state's annual all-star game for local high school players.  It has also served as venue for weddings, receptions, and other parties.
