Starry Nights Outdoor Movies are doing an impressive job of bringing the 'memorable' back to 2020 with some nostalgic entertainment for movie lovers, showcasing an awesome selection of cult classic screenings from yesteryear, at the Eumundi Drive-In. In the past few months, movie buffs have been given the opportunity to 'escape' with a splendid selection of grand ol' classics.

Based on a Stephen King novella, The Shawshank Redemption - Rated MA/Age 15 plus tells the story of a law-abiding banker, Andy Dufresne, (Tim Robbins) who is framed in the 1940s for the double murder of his wife and her lover. Over the next two decades, Dufresne serves his sentence at the Shawshank prison, putting his accounting skills to work for the warden. During his long stretch in prison, Andy Dufresne comes to be admired by the other inmates, including an older prisoner, named Red (Morgan Freeman) for his integrity and unquenchable sense of hope.

In 2015, the United States Library of Congress selected The Shawshank Redemption for preservation in the National Film Registry, finding it 'culturally, historically or aesthetically significant'.

On Saturday, 10 October, Starry Nights Outdoor Movies, has once again partnered with The Imperial Hotel Eumundi to bring movie lovers a screening of the classic flick, The Shawshank Redemption.

Tickets are ONLY $30 per carload (legally speaking, of course). To guarantee your carpark on Saturday 10 October, tickets can be pre-purchased, via ticketebo online here.
