Room 237

Please Note: This film is no longer showing at Railroad Square Cinema

In the 30 years since the release of Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining (screening Sat. night), a cult of devotees has emerged, fans who claim to have decoded the film’s secret messages addressing everything from the genocide of Native Americans to a range of government conspiracies. Rodney Ascher’s wry and provocative Room 237 fuses fact and fiction through interviews with cultists and scholars, creating a film far more mind-blowing than anything Kubrick ever made–one that will make you wonder what you just saw at every moment! “Irresistibly loopy…a tribute both to Kubrick’s masterpiece and the crazy thrill of losing oneself in a critical maze of themes, subtexts and signifiers”—Nick Schrager, Village Voice. Unrated. 103 Min.”
