The anniversary screenings will be held in selected theatres across the country on September 22, 24, and 25. The event will also include exclusive insight from Turner Classic Movies. It was directed by Frank Darabont and based on Stephen King’s 1982 novella Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption.

The film received seven Oscars nods, including Best Picture and Best Actor for Freeman, but failed to score a win.
