im Robbins stars as Andy
Dufresne, a soft spoken
respected banker from Maine, who
is wrongly convicted of murdering
both his wife and her lover. He is
sentenced to two life sentences
and is sent to the notoriously harsh
Shawshank Prison, Maine’s toughest
maximum security penitentiary. He
befriends fellow prisoner Ellis “Red”
Redding (Morgan Freeman). Red,
“the man who knows how to get
things”, obtains a rock hammer for
Dufresne, an object he wishes to
own in order to pursue a hobby in
rock collecting.
Years later, Andy comes up
missing from his cell one
morning. It becomes clear
that he escaped the prison
by tunneling through the
walls with the rock hammer
given to him shortly after
his arrival. When Red is
finally released from prison,
he follows the instructions
given to him by Andy to
find a further note hidden
beneath a tree, which
eventually leads him to
meet Andy on the coast
of Mexico.

Drive-it-Yourself Tour
SHAWSHANK FACT: The Historic Ohio State Reformatory was used as the fictional
Shawshank State Prison in New England. To see and hear more on The Shawshank
Redemption, make sure to take the Hollywood Tour - The cell, the warden’s office, and
even the carving on the ceiling that reads, “Brooks was here. So was Red” are on display.
Even more amazing is the tunnel that the main character, Andy Dufresne (Tim Robbins),
dug. It is about 2 feet in diameter. Chocolate syrup, sawdust, and water were used in the
tunnel to mimic an actual sewer pipe. The hole that Andy dug through his cell wall to
escape is also on display.
