Weddings Booked through Next Year at Shawshank Prison [VIDEO]
In the top 100 of movies of all time is “The Shawshank Redemption” made in 1994. That’s according to this website which puts the film at #72 on the list. It’s one of my favorites and the prison used in the movie is now being used for weddings. There’s even an annual bridal show called “Glamour in the Slammer”, at the abandoned prison in Mansfield, Ohio. The Mansfield Reformatory Preservation Society has transformed the prison into a facility that’s just perfect for nuptials. In fact if you’re planning on looking at that spot for a wedding in 2012, forget it, it’s booked through the end of next year and has begun taking reservations for 2013. Hard to imagine sweet marital ceremonial bliss behind those bars, but am so glad a piece of that great film is being preserved somehow. Here’s the trailer.
