Widely considered to be one of the finest films of all time, the film adaptation of Stephen King’s The Shawshank Redemption was originally released in 1995 and now its 25th anniversary is looming. To celebrate the milestone, Fathom Events and TCM Big Screen Classics will be re-releasing the film in cinemas later this year.
The anniversary screenings will take place in cinemas across the United States on September 22nd, 24th, and 25th, and viewers will also be privy to exclusive insight from Turner Classic Movies. If you’d like to see this classic movie on the big screen then you can book tickets from Fathom Events’ website.
Despite its critical acclaim, The Shawshank Redemption was somewhat of a letdown during its initial theater run, earning only $16 million. It was nominated for seven Oscars, including Best Picture, but failed to win any. However, the film’s quality has managed to shine through and it’s currently No. 1 in IMDB’s ranking of films.
Based on Stephen King’s short novel, the film tells the story of a man wrongly convicted of murdering his wife, his struggle to survive in prison, and the friendship he makes with one of his fellow inmates.
