“Some people build fences to keep people out — and other people build fences to keep people in.”
Clarksville, TN – Come out to the Roxy Regional Theatre this Friday evening for one of the finest examples of live performance retaining its power in the translation from the stage to the screen. Starring Denzel Washington and Viola Davis, Planters Bank Presents… the Academy Award-winning “Fences” on the Roxy big screen this Friday, September 18th, 2020 at 7:00pm.

Bitter about his lot in life, Maxson frequently takes out his frustrations on his loved ones as he fights to provide for them in a world that threatens to push him down.
