Revivals Film Screening Series: The Shining


Loosely based on the Stephen King novel, The Shining follows a writer (Jack Nicholson), his wife (Shelley Duvall) and son as they become caretakers of the Overlook resort hotel during the winter off-season. Isolated and snowbound, the family experiences an evil presence that encourages the father to commit violence, while his psychic son sees frightening visions from the hotel's past.

Now regarded as one of the best horror movies ever made, The Shining has spawned numerous theories about hidden meanings within the film — explored in the new documentary Room 237.
