Clarksville, TN – Get ready to rock ‘n’ roll with the King at the Roxy Regional Theatre this weekend when Planters Bank Presents… “Jailhouse Rock” on their big screen this Friday, October 2nd, 2020 at 7:00pm.
In this raw-edged rock ‘n’ roll classic, Elvis Presley stars as hotheaded young singer Vince Everett, who goes to prison for accidentally killing a man in a barroom brawl while defending a young woman’s honor. After Everett’s cellmate teaches him how to play guitar and encourages him to sing, Everett’s hip-swiveling, electrifying performance at a jailhouse concert leads to stardom.
But fame quickly gives Everett an over-sized ego, and only the loss of his voice and the loyalty of his friends as he struggles to sing again teach Everett to appreciate his good fortune.
Rating: NR / Running time: 96 minutes / Release year: 1957 / Director: Richard Thorpe / Cast: Elvis Presley, Judy Tyler, Mickey Shaughnessy, Jennifer Holden, Dean Jones / Licensing: Swank Motion Pictures
