Saw it on the big screen with 5 others in attendance. Why does Fatham Events fail to advertise? If MCU can release Endgame twice in the same month to as much fanfare, Shawshank deserved the same effort.

Shawshank was an amazing movie when we rented a VHS tape of it from Blockbuster and was just as AMAZING on the big screen 25 years later!

I'd never seen this film before (it was one of my Dad's favorites), and it was great seeing it on the big screen! Love Fathom Events!

Metacritic

80

In the lead roles, both Robbins and Freeman are outstanding, layering their performances with snippets of individuality: Their small, daily sustenances and minor triumphs are wonderfully inspiring.

If the film is perhaps a little slow in its middle passages, maybe that is part of the idea, too, to give us a sense of the leaden passage of time, before the glory of the final redemption.

This is a movie with every facet shining in place, every word charged and resonant. [23 Sept 1994]
