Things are same as they've always been over in Hickory, Indiana

There isn't much in the film Hoosiers that would indicate the locations in the movie changed between when the film took place in the 1950s and when it was released in 1986. But if you needed further proof that rural Indiana isn't on the same time as most everywhere else, watch this amazing short film that juxtaposes scenes from the film and what they look like today. Save for a few modern cars, vending machines and the absence of Dennis Hopper stumbling around drunk, not much has changed. The storefronts are still there, the gyms are still tiny and over at Butler's Hinkle Fieldhouse  the rims are still 10 feet high--just like they are in Hickory.
