One of the greatest films ever made is back in theaters for some special screenings to mark 25 years since it's release.

"Get busy living, or get busy dying."  "Hope is a good thing maybe even the best of things and good things never die." The great quotes from Shawshank Redemption go on and on and it is definitely a movie that has achieved classic status over the years. As Shawshank celebrates 25 years, there are some special Capital Region screenings of the legendary movie starring Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman set for this week.

Fathom Events is holding screenings of the movie at Regal Cinemas at the Colonie Center and Crossgates Mall, as well as Phoenix Theaters Beacon in Pittsfield Tuesday and Wednesday nights. Showings both nights will be at 7pm.

At some point over the years you have seen a movies after it left theaters and wished you had seen it on the big screen. For me, Shawshank is one of those movies. This is a pretty cool opportunity to rectify that.
