Planning is well underway for this August’s celebration of the quarter century anniversary of The Shawshank Redemption, and word is getting out.

On Friday, news hit the Columbus and other Gatehouse Media markets through a piece entitled, ‘Shawshank cast gathers to celebrate 25th anniversary in Mansfield.’ In the staff-written piece, the author shares the up-to-date list of cast members who have registered their intention to appear; a list of locations along the Shawshank Trail; and a list of events during the celebration.

The article finishes with a look at attractions in the Mansfield and Richland County area.

In 2015, the film was selected by the United States Library of Congress to be preserved in the National Film Registry for being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant

It has been the number 1 film on IMDb’s user-generated Top 250 since 2008, when it surpassed The Godfather, having remained at or near the top since the late 1990s.
