Regal Crossgates 18 continues their Classic Film Series with The Shawshank Redemption, today, at 2 and 7pm only. The last film in the Classic series will be Silence of the Lambs, next week, at 2pm on Sunday, and 2 and 7pm on Wednesday.
Synopsis: “In 1946, a banker named Andy Dufresne (Tim Robbins) is convicted of a double murder, even though he stubbornly proclaims his innocence. He’s sentenced to a life term at the Shawshank State Prison in Maine, where another lifer, Ellis “Red” Redding (Morgan Freeman), picks him as the new recruit most likely to crack under the pressure. The ugly realities of prison life are quickly introduced to Andy: a corrupt warden (Bob Gunton), sadistic guards led by Capt. Byron Hadley (Clancy Brown), and inmates who are little better than animals, willing to use rape or beatings to insure their dominance. But Andy does not crack.” ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
