Stephen King adaptation The Shawshank Redemption will be back in cinemas in the UK and Ireland after being restored in 4K. Vue cinemas will be screening the classic film, often considered one of the best of all time, from Friday 18th March.

The restoration, performed by Warner Bros., features a new 4K scan of the original 35mm camera negative. The process was supervised by director Frank Darabont and cinematographer Roger Deakins.
