The Shawshank Redemption Movie Screening and Panel Discussion:

Screening of The Shawshank Redemption at The Renaissance Theatre at 7 pm on Friday, August 29th.

"Fear can hold you prisoner. Hope can set you free." In the fall of 1994, this epic phrase was uttered onscreen at the Renaissance Theatre for the premier of The Shawshank Redemption. Now, relive the premier with a screening at the Renaissance as we kick off the twenty-year anniversary of The Shawshank Redemption, a rich part of Mansfield's legacy.

Church at Shawshank:

Andy felt literal bars holding back his dreams and desires. Most of us can relate. We might not feel the cold steel, but we do feel caged from our creativity and imprisoned from our potential. We see what we could be, but we feel overwhelmed by the distance between knowing and becoming.

Take a unique 30-minute journey through film, Scripture, and dialogue. International author, coach, and speaker Kary Oberbrunner will serve as your tour guide. He’ll show how it’s possible to move from PRISON to PLAN to PAYOFF. God wants you to escape the Shawshank inside your soul. Join us for a brief experience that might just set you free.

This will be held at the Ohio State Reformatory.  These tickets will sell out. Limited seating is available. Doors open at 8:30 am. “Church” is from 9-9:30 AM

Tickets are $7 per person (ticket fees may apply)  A portion of these proceeds go towards a local food bank.
